Arabian Gun Twirler (1899)

Hadji Cheriff plays himself in this 32 second film from Edison. The title pretty much tells you everything you need to know. As you'd expect, Cheriff just showed up at the Edison studio, got on the stage and re-created his act. There's certainly nothing too amazing here but I always enjoy watching these early films because it gives you a chance to see a performing act that has been forgotten over time. It's always fascinating to me to get to go back to 1899 and see a performer who people were paying to see. Thankfully cinema came along and someone like Edison and other companies filmed these acts.
