How the Office Boy Saw the Ball Game 1906

  • 2.9
Only five minutes of this Edwin S. Porter film has survived but we see, in the remaining fragment, the extent to which an office boy will go to watch a baseball game. A dangerous situation? We'll never know.

N.B. Christy Mathewson shows up two and a half minutes in.

As a relic, it's nice. Compared to modern standards of narrative: ha.

An interesting part is they are playing a real major league baseball game in the ealy 1900s.

Some familiar action footage, but many bits that was news to me. Terrific!
