Lent: Part 38

The Great Train Robbery (1903) – Given that he was the first man to ever do that stunt on film, I gotta congratulate the guy who got hit over the head and fell on the ground on his fantastic acting. I do wonder about the completely silent song and dance number though.

Jackie suggested that they actually killed the guy for that stunt, and considering what a total dick Thomas Edison was, I wouldn’t be surprised.

    My Two Cents: Part 38

    Wow, what a cliched piece of crap. C’mon, having a guy shoot directly at the camera for shock value? How many times have we seen that?

    In other news, adorable.

    Stipulating that jokes don’t always translate through the internet… you realize that this movie probably created that cliche, right? That is the joke, right?

    Stupidly yours,
