Mrs. Auguste Lumiere,
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
To the best of my knowledge, the Lumieres had only one camera during most of 1895 and none of them visited London to film anything. The movie was probably taken in 1896 by a Lumiere-company cameraman. Since the projected Lion would be about life size, the film must have impressed the viewers.
