Storyline

A stationary camera observes two fighting cocks on a raised platform, with chicken wire behind them. On the far side of the chicken wire are two men, on either side of the frame. We see just the head of the man on our left and the head and chest of the man on our right, who is clearly in charge. Money changes hands twice as the cocks fight. Feathers fly. The man on our right points and shakes his finger. Both cocks are still standing when the film ends. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

cockfighting when it was cool...
13 July 2014 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

W.K.L. Dickson and William Heise make a short video of cockfighting around the turn-of-the-century. The film shows two cocks fighting with two men watching behind them. They smile and exchange what seems to be money as the bet on the match.

Its a little hard to watch such a heinous sport, but one must understand it was a different time, when such sports thrived. Dickson and Heise must have been on constant look-out for exciting and different subjects to film. However, there is not much to recommend this film. There is more interesting pieces filmed by the duo that displays what film was like in 1894.
