New Edison Films -- Latest Feature Subjects -- June 5, 2024

New York Clipper, 01-February-1908

The Edison Manufacturing Company offered a wide variety of short films. To me the most interesting item is "Rescued From an Eagle's Nest," a 1908 film which was directed by pioneer Edwin S Porter. The lead actor was future director DW Griffith. The battle between Griffith and the stuffed eagle is epic. 

"The Suburbanite's Ingenious Alarm" sounds like fun. This was a 1907 film directed by Porter.
