A comprehensive survey of one of cinema's most influential figures, Edison: The Invention of the Movies is a monumental collection of 140 archival motion pictures. From 19th-century camera tests never intended for public screening to the last feature length film released by the Thomas A. Edison Studios in 1918 (The Unbeliever), the collection is digitally mastered with musical scores, surrounded by a wealth of historical documents and interviews with leading film archvists and historians.
