I don’t think I have previously blogged this famous short film showing Annie Oakly doing tricks. The film was shot in Edison’s studio for the Edison Kinetoscope.
In the film her husband is throwing glass balls. When doing her shows the glass balls would be filled with colored power and features. This clip from the PBS documentary American Experience shows a recreation of these powered-filled glass balls being shot at.
