A Work of Fiction
22 August 2016 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Come Along, Do! (1898)

The majority of the movies that were made during this era were quite simple as production companies would set up a camera and capture something on film. This could be people walking out of a factory, firemen on their way to a fire, a police parade or some sort of dance. This film here is different and one of the earliest examples of some sort of "fiction" being put on the screen but exactly what they were doing is somewhat of a mystery. A man and a woman are sitting on a bench when they eventually stand up and walk into a door. I'm not sure what the director was going for here but you've at least got to give him credit for trying something new. Obviously there's nothing ground- breaking here as the film lasts under a minute but it's interesting for fans of early cinema.
