5 editions published between 1918 and 2005 in English and held by 747 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

Gaumont treasures( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jacques Feyder enjoyed a long, fruitful career as director, celebrated for such films as The Kiss (1929, starring Greta Garbo) and Knight Without Armor (1937, with Marlene Dietrich). Feyder cultivated his talents in the 1910s at the Gaumont Studios, where a carefully-curated stable of innovative directors were advancing the artistic finesse of the adolescent art form. In addition to Feyder's sophisticated comedies, this volume showcases a wide variety of other forms, impeccably executed: slapstick (The Long Arm of the Law), realism (The Barges), and experimental film (Feet and Hands). This disc also presents samples of the astounding technical achievements that Gaumont had mastered, years before they became standard practice, such as the Phonoscéne, a synchronized sound process presented to the public via the Chronomégaphone sound-on-disc system."--Container

The burgular on the roof( Visual )

1 edition published in 1898 and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

J. Stuart Blackton and Albert Smith emerged as important filmmakers and exhibitors in the spring and summer of 1898. When they were caught duping Thomas Edison's copyrighted war films, they seemed to have no choice but to become licensees and acknowledge Edison's patents. With audiences tiring of war films, they used their experience as entertainers and made short comedies and magic films. Burglar on the roof (which features Blackton as the burglar) was shot on the rooftop of their office building in lower Manhattan. A history of the Edison Company and the invention of the motion picture
