Storyline

A train moves down the track. In a car, seated next to each other in a companionable way, is a couple who are reading, probably wife and husband. As the train enters a tunnel, the man abandons his reading, turns to the woman, and kisses her; she is somewhat reluctant. As the train leaves the tunnel, they return to their books.

One of two nearly identical films both made in 1899!
15 September 2006 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I knew that the old-time movie makers often "borrowed" or outright plagiarized from each other, but this is ridiculous! Not only did George Albert Smith make this film in 1899, but Bamforth and Company made a nearly identical film that same year with the same title!!! The worst part about it is that neither film was all that great. And, of the two, the Smith one is slightly less well made.

Like all movies of the 1890s, this one is incredibly brief and almost completely uninteresting to audiences in the 21st century. Only film historians and crazy people like me would watch this brief film (I'm a history teacher and film lover--that's my excuse for watching them BOTH).
