Is some of the film so degraded that we can't see anything? Yup, sure is. Does it matter? Not one bit. It adds to the nostalgic charm of the piece. Thanks for sharing this wonderful piece of history. I'm going to share it with some friends.

First great movie
Great movie. I would say it is the first great action movie.
Everyone makes such a big deal out of "The Great Train Robbery" (1903), and obviously it is an important film, but this is the first full-length feature and is sadly ignored. Doesn't matter that there isn't much left, there's enough to know that it's pretty sophisticated and should be mentioned in more books than it is.
