The Whole Dam Family and the Dam Dog
One of several Edison films from this period that used animated intertitles. It continued "a popular fad which has been widely advertised by lithographs and souvenir mailing cards." These postcards showed portraits of various members of the Dam family, with their names: I. B. Dam, U. B. Dam and so forth. This comedy plays with cinematic form, offering numerous introductory portraits followed by only a short vignette of action.
