Let the Remakes Begin

Feeding the Doves (1896)

Those against all the remakes today would probably have hated living back in the early era of cinema when anything popular was eventually made by every studio making movies. This film runs a very brief 20-seconds but I guess it was quite popular in its day. We see a woman and her young daughter throwing grain to their chickens and doves who fly around and that's pretty much it. This same type of film was shot two years earlier by the Lumiere company and future versions would follow from American Mutoscope, Biograph and others. There's certainly nothing special in any version but I guess people got a kick out of seeing all these birds jumping around. I guess those in big cities had never seen this type of thing before.
