One Shot


What first does the picture to the left have? Also identify its name, which has been cropped out.






Answer: This is L'Arroseur Arrosé, a 49 second silent comedy which was shot using the Lumiere Projector. Quoting wikipedia:
"The poster for L'Arroseur Arrosé has the distinction of being the first poster ever designed to promote an individual film...... these early posters were typically devoted to describing the quality of the recordings and touting the technological novelty of these shows."

Without bothering to google, I think it was the first ever comedy scene in a movie. The boy stepped on the hose and blocked the water. The boy stepped off it when gardener brought it near his face to inspect and the pic in the image resulted. Don't know the other details off the top of the head
