The Birth of Cinema

Kodak, Edison and Dixon are introduced, as are their first roles in the story of film history. Next week we cover movies they made.
I use movie clips as transitions in this show. Once we reach sound film, all the clips will be very pertinent, but for now it is just for the joy of movies, and as a reminder to where we are eventually headed. This week the movies were:
Iron Man (2008)
Sabrina (1954)
Jaws (1975)
Brining up Baby (1938)
If you want to contact me, please email me at, and visit the show's website:
Happy listening, and I will see you next week!
