Come Along, Do!1898

  • 2.5
The earliest movies had to keep things simple, thus here the main event happens off-screen (as it would have been complicated to depict at the time). It is an art exhibit that a middle-aged couple finally exit to observe after we've observed them sitting on a bench outside, finishing their picnic lunch. British director Robert Paul was a maker of scientific instruments who entered the movies when he was asked to develop a kinescope (otherwise known as a motion picture camera) similar to Thomas Edison's patented device. The success of that assignment led him into directing, producing, photographing and distributing films of his own in his native London until the dawn of the 1910s. - Dennis Harvey
