Description by OLDIES.com:
Lumiere Premiere Program (1895): This is the actual program which premiered in France in 1895. High points include the world's first projected motion picture, Workers Coming Out Of A Factory At Monplaisir (1894) by Louis Lumiere, Charge of The French Cuirassiers (which terrified audiences into leaping from their seats) and some of film's earliest slapstick.
Selig-Tribune #21 (1916): Billed as "The world's greatest news films," the Selig-Tribune organization produced these motion picture montages from around the world. Harvard crewmen, a huge cathedral encased in ice, modern battleships and college hi-jinks are among the subjects featured in this edition.
Under Royal Patronage (1914): In this well-produced very early romantic comedy, European royals get American chums to impersonate them to avoid a pre-arranged marriage. Starring Francis X. Bushman, Bryant Washburn; Directed by E.H. Calvert.
