The 19th Century Version of Swingball
7 December 2009 | by (www.moviemoviesite.com) – See all my reviews

Robert Paul is a largely forgotten name today, but he was a major pioneer of British cinema, and was quick to grasp the commercial potential of cinema in ways that better known pioneers such as William Friese-Greene were not. He was more of a mechanic than a filmmaker making, with Birt Acres, his own camera on which to shoot films in 1895, and also Britain's first projector, the Animatograph, with which to screen them in 1896. Early in the 20th century he had a custom-made studio built in Muswell Hill.

This film is set aboard a boat in which we see a naval officer playing a game of tetherball (a bit like swingball) with civilian passengers, and looks like it was filmed by a bored cameraman.
