A Game of Snowballing

Mischievous Victorian kids build a snowman - out of a passer-by!

Comedy 1899 2 mins


Frozen, Victorian style. Far from being a game, this snowball fight turns into a pitched battle. No doubt stage-managed for the camera, a hapless cyclist rides into the middle of a snowball fight and suffers the consequences. The film was produced by Charles Goodwin Norton, who was one of several to move from magic lantern slides into photographing and exhibiting films in cinema’s earliest years.
