Storyline

A male lion, right next to bars that are about 6 or 8 inches apart, keenly watches a uniformed zoo attendant toss small morsels of food into the cage. The lion alternates between finding the food on the cage floor and reaching through the bars to swipe at the man, who stays alarmingly close to the beast. In the background are the large rocks and brick wall at the back of the lion's habitat. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Another one of the early shorts
4 March 2005 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The camera watches a lion behind bars and a man in front of it feeds the animal. From time to time he wants the attention of the lion who sticks his paw through the bars.

The Lumière Brothers, Louis and Auguste, were not present while this little film was shot; one of their workers brought the camera along. Like all these shorts this one is interesting for its historical value. Watching something as old as this, a lion long gone, is sort of special. Also, it must have been pretty spectacular then, a pretty huge lion on a screen. Since it plays for not even a minute you will not be bored. Quite interesting.
