Tonight’s film is 1893’s “Blacksmith Scene,” which I believe is the first film recording of work in history. Of course it is staged work, but still. It’s an interesting minute of film, if for the centrality of drinking to work still if nothing else. It’s directed by William Dixon at Thomas Edison’s experimental film studio in New Jersey.
