Gordon Highlanders (1898)

*** (out of 4)

The "Gordon Highlanders" are pretty much forgotten today except by history buffs but they were the most renowned infantry regiment in Scotland and became most famous not only for their outfits, which included kilts with red and white socks, but also for their battle with Napoleon in 1915. This British film, much like most films being made at this time, just has the camera standing still while the infantry walks in front of it. Also, like a lot of the films made at this time, the best moments come from all the accidents that are happening in the frame. It seems like a couple men were hired as security to keep people out of the frame and often times we see them grabbing kids and adults only to push them out of the frame. This goes on for quite a bit of time and even the infantry are looking at the camera as I'm sure it was their first time seeing anything like it. Not much happens in this short document of the period but it's still a lot of fun to see early movie making.
