Edison the invention of the movies by Howard Hawks( Visual )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Commercial motion pictures were invented at the Edison Laboratory between 1888 and 1893.

In 1894, Edison was the sole producer of motion pictures in the world. Many Edison films continue to be impressive as the company employed such accomplished early directors as John Collins and Alan Crosland
