Discharging a Whitehead Torpedo (1900)

Filmed off the coast of Rhode Island, this Edison short takes place on the U.S. torpedo boat Morris as we see some men loading up a torpedo that is eventually shot off. This film lasts only 75-seconds but it's almost as if the director wanted to save the best for last. The first sixty-seconds are pretty lifeless as we barely get to see what's going on but once the torpedo is shot off things pick up. You'll see the thing going through the water, which is a nice site and pretty much makes this thing worth sitting through. There's certainly nothing ground breaking here but it's an interesting part of history.
