BRIEF REVIEWS OF FILMS BY THE GUY WHO DID THE LIGHTBULB AND TRIED TO MAKE EVERYTHING OUT OF CEMENT (5)

THE EXECUTION OF MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS (1895):
They use a dummy who looks just like Mary Queen of Scots of yesteryear. Then the executioner guy picks up the head and it really is Mary Queen of Scots*. Sometimes I wonder what Edison’s problem was. Still, this is the very best movie ever made, unless you really like Mary Queen of Scots.





* Well, not really THE Mary Queen of Scots.
