Great...Train Robbery,Detective,Balls of Fire

On this day in history as it relates to the movies...

1859Arthur Conan Doyle is born.Probably rolls over in his grave 150 years later when Guy Ritchie'sSherlock Holmespremieres and the great detective becomes a slo mo action hero
1868The Great Train Robbery happens.It's the subject of a highly influential 10 minute silent film (embedded above) as soon as people figure out what to do with cameras and celluloid in 1903.Cross-cutting,breaking the fourth wall,inventing the western action movie genre?It's all happening right here.
1907Laurence Olivieris born.Not yet a "Sir"but already expecting a cooing audience
1945Paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren are married.They become the fab Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson inThe Conjuring (2013) andThe Conjuring 2(2016)

1958Jerry Lee Lewis tells the world he's married his 13 year old cousin Myra.Later they look just like Dennis Quaid and Winona Ryder in a movie
1967Brooke Smith,the girl in the pit,is born
1973Nikolaj Lie Kass,Danish actor of underappreciated hotness (Brothers,The Idiots),is born
1998The Opposite of Sexhits theaters,Christina Ricci gets a well deserved Golden Globe Best Actress nod for her inspired star turn
2005The razor sharp Cronenberg filmA History of Violencewas stiffed of any prize at the Cannes Film Festival despite a strange round of winners which at least included Michael Haneke as Best Director for the brilliantCaché.Both films went to to make the Best Picture lineup right here at The Film Experience.亚博主页
2016The 69th annual Cannes Film Festival closes.Awards ceremony tonight in France so come back for the winners in the late afternoon!
