Springtime Silent Movie Challenge: In the Beginning..., -- June 21, 2018

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)

Fantasmagorie (1908)

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.
