The First Animated Film?


Recommended Posts

For a while, I thought Humorous Phases of Funny Faces (1906) was the first animated film.


Recently, I read about a film called Autour d'une cabine - an 1895 French animated short film directed by ?mile Reynaud.


This film SHOULD be famous. It SHOULD be treasured - but it's not.


I purpose a restoration, as this is a work of animation that should be prized. Emile Reynuad was depressed with the fact that most of the public forgot him over Emile Cohl and J. Stuart Blackton, and threw his equipment and most of his films into the Sile river. This should be restored because it seems to me that it is a very rare example of his work.


Is Autour d'une cabine the first animated film?


I think so.
