Duel au pistolet (1896)

Gabriel Veyre directed this film, which has two men facing one another with pistols pointed. We see a group of people watching and then they fire with one man falling dead. There has been quite a bit of decade on whether or not this duel was staged or if it was something that really happened. Obviously a real death being filmed is something that would be highly debated today. Personally speaking, I'm going to guess that this here was just staged and especially since when the film starts the men already have their weapons drawn and pointed at each other. I'm no expert on duels but wasn't it common for them to pace and then turn? Either way,t his here is quite interesting to watch.
