    Cool movie. This and A Trip to the Moon are good introductions to the earlier, simpler days of cinema before Griffith modernized it with all of his 'advanced techniques' and 'art.' Not that those are bad things ... but it's interesting to see narratives and creative ideas coming into films. 9 years 2 months ago

    Remember to check the runtime when seeing this. There is a few too short versions. 2 years 1 month ago
