The Gay Shoe Clerk1903

  • 3.6
This film is often noted as an early example of the interpolated close-up. However, while the action moves smoothly across the shots, attentive viewers will notice a remarkable set of discontinuities. The woman's underskirts are white in the close up but dark in the long shot. The shot in the cross-cutting is not really a close up in the conventional sense, in any event, for the leg is isolated against a plain white background.

I don't see what makes the shoe clerk gay...he seems to be interested in the lady customer and gives he a kiss.
