JHCC Posted September 30, 2016 Share Posted September 30, 2016 Just ran across this short film clip showing a smith and two strikers. Its run time is only 34 seconds long, but it's interesting in a few ways. First, it is the first known example of actors (in this case, Edison employees) performing roles in a staged scene. Second, it was the first commercially exhibited film. (Third, it is our earliest filmed evidence of the close relationship between blacksmiths and beer.)
