Sallie Gardner at a Gallop ★★★★½

The Art Of Film 101: Day one essential viewing.

I could watch this thing on a continuous loop for, like...minutes. I just love it when all four of the horse's feet are off the ground. It's one thing to invent a motion picture camera and film something just to prove it works. It's quite another to try to answer a simple question and invent a new art form in the process. This film would later be remade as Antonioni's Blow-Up.
