Boots, Boots, Boots, Boots, Marching Up and Down Again
4 May 2009 | by JoeytheBritSee all my reviews

Watching a film like this would make directors of us all. It shows - well, it shows what the title says: a group of policemen marching up and down in front of a static camera for a couple of minutes. Occasionally they nearly march off-screen, but the camera never moves. If a director was commissioned to shoot the same thing today we would be treated to one establishing long shot (of which this entire film is comprised) probably followed by close-ups of the officers faces as they pass the camera at an angle, and perhaps a shot of boots marching towards camera before smartly turning left or right. The options are almost limitless. I wonder if any cameraman back in 1903 considered then dismissed such notions as too fanciful to be taken seriously...
