Before The Nickelodeon R2 (Uk Import) - Musser, Charles
Releasedatum: 26 augustus 2006
Before the Nickelodeon, an award-winning and intricately detailed documentary on the genesis of early cinema, focuses on one of the craft's most ingenious pioneers: Edwin S Porter. The film is based on the research of the leading scholar of early American film, Charles Musser, who also co-wrote and directed it. As narrator Blanche Sweet (one of D W Griffith's Biograph starlets) acknowledges, to study Porter's fortunes is to witness the emergence of the American cinema industry and Before the Nickelodeon charts Porter's illustrious career from telephone operator to projectionist and finally prestigious film director. Before the Nickelodeon includes excerpts from the hugely popular and imaginative Life of an American Fireman (1903), Jack and the Beanstalk (1902) and Porter's finest, The Great Train Robbery (1903).

DVD Extra's:
Illustrated booklet with an introduction. Credits and biographies of Edwin S Porter, Charles Musser and Blanche Sweet.
