The Bill Poster

An early film in-joke

Comedy 1899 1 mins Silent


There's no mistaking who made this early film in-joke, which has a secondary function as an advertisement. The bill of the title - plastered illicitly over a shop window - is clearly marked 'Animated Photographs by C. Goodwin Norton'. Norton's own shop in London's St. Pancras provides the backdrop.
