Angelic and demonic serpentine dances from dawn of cinema by the Lumière Brothers film, called the Serpentine Dance. The dancer is Loie Fuller; the pioneer modern dancer. Recorded in 1896 in Paris, and hand-colored frame by frame.
This 1896 film from Albert Kirchner is considered the first pornographic movie, or at least that's what a lot of online sources say. The film apparently ran for seven minutes but only the first one minute and forty-seconds still exist. We see a husband a his new wife on their wedding night in their bedroom as he wants to get to the action. She pushes him away but slowly starts to undress. The film "ends" just as she's about to get naked. Consider where it ends, it really made me wonder if this was really how the film was meant to end. I say this because it's not common for a film from 1896 to run seven-minutes so the current running time seems about right. Either way, there's nothing overly good or really all that interesting about anything here. Yes, for 1896 it's naughty but that's about it.
