Fire! Fire! Fire! -- January 4, 2023

New York Clipper, 28-February-1903

In January 1903, Edison released Edwin S Porter's "Life of an American Fireman."  It became a very influential movie in a very short time.  The movie tells a complete story in about half a reel. This Edison ad describes each shot of the movie except the alternating inside and outside shots at the end. 

The Theatre of Science by Robert Grau, 1914
