This post is part of the Springtime Silent Movie Challenge: In the Beginning..., hosted by Fritzi at Movies Silently. "Here’s the challenge. Before June 21, 2018, you will:
"Watch 5 movies made between 1906 and 1914
"Watch 5 movies made in 1905 or before
"Share your experience on your blog, on social media or here in the comments (I will set up a special post for the purpose to publish on June 21)"
I decided to concentrate on movies which were pioneering efforts.
Five Movies Made in 1905 or Before:
Roundhay Garden Scene (1888)
Dickson Greeting (1891)
The Waterer Watered (1895)
The Fairy of the Cabbages (1896)
Between Calais and Dover (1897)
Five Movies Made Between 1906 and 1914:
Humorous Phases of Funny Faces (1906)
The Story of the Kelly Gang (1906)
The Adventures of Dollie (1908)
The Water Nymph (1912)
I am very happy that Fritzi encouraged us to watch early movies for this web challenge. Of then ten movies I watched, I had seen nine before, but I enjoyed each one and learned new things about each one. I enjoyed remembering where and when I had seen some of them for the first time and was happy to have a chance to write about that. Thank you, Fritzi, for organizing this challenge.
