Crude Set Drama
A basic bit of early comic storytelling on film
Comedy 1896 1 mins Silent
This comic scene features two men in a makeshift bar, drinking and tormenting the pot boy. It's clearly a very early film and not easy to identify. An educated guess might lead us to Birt Acres, because of its early date. It appears to be filmed in the back garden of an urban street with a lace curtain standing in crudely for the wallpaper of a bar. There are some basic props and larking about, but no very clear narrative.
