The Execution of Mary Stuart

MaryExecution.jpgThe movie that I have chosen for October 21 is probably going to be the shortest. On October 21, 1879 Thomas Edison invented the first light bulb. As an inventor he was able to help bring into the world a new way of seeing in the dark. In 1895 Thomas Edison produced his first film The Execution of Mary Stuart.

Starting off with showing Mary Stuart bringing brought up to the scaffold to be beheaded. As soon as she gets up their the executioner swings his ax. Once the ax hits her neck her head comes off as the film ends after eighteen seconds.

Even though this film was only eighteen seconds, Thomas Edison was able to bring to life one of most famous executions. On October 21, 1879 Thomas Edison officially invented a new way to see light in the darkness. Over time the light bulb has been improved, yet Thomas Alva Edison was the first one to bring it to life.
