The Giphoscope n° 26 displays an animated gif excerpted from The Kiss, the first film sequence ever recorded of a kiss. We are in 1896, and the sequence was filmed inside the Black Maria, the first American film studio, in which the operator William Kennedy Laurie Dickson ran short film for Thomas Edison and his Kinetoscope.

The footage of the kiss, also known as The May Irwin Kiss, lasts about 15 seconds and documents the kiss between May Irwin and John Rice, in the final scene of the Broadway musical The Widow Jones.

The Kiss - one of the first films shown to the public for commercial purposes - provoked scandal and disapproval from the press. In some cases it was even called for the intervention of the police in places where the film was projected.

In 1999, The Kiss was deemed ‘culturally significant’ by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry of the United States.

EXCERPTS >|< Louella Gallagher, Knife-Thrower (1950)

A series of gif excerpted from a short movie of 1950, in which the knife thrower Louella Gallagher performs with her two daughters: Connie Ann of 5 years and Colleena Sue 2 and ½. The three Gallagher are showing in Texas and the news appears in a newsreel of the time.
If still alive, today Connie and Sue should have approximately 60 years. It would be really interesting to hear their point of view on their childhood.

Se ancora vive, oggi Connie and Sue dovrebbero avere all'incirca 60 anni. Sarebbe davvero interessante conoscere il loro punto di vista sulla loro infanzia.
