The American Vitagraph -- April 4, 2022

New York Clipper, 04-April-1903

The Vitagraph Company of America, an important early film studio, advertised a wide selection of films. "The Life of an American Fireman" may be a pirated copy or an unofficial remake of the 1903 Edison film. I assume "Robinson Crusoe" is the 1903 Georges Méliès version. "Sleeping Beauty" was a Pathé Frères production. Shamrock III was the third in a series of five yachts that Thomas Lipton built to try to take the America's Cup.
