Frenchman's Claim to
Be "Father" of Films
Nobody quite knows who was the
originator of the cinematograph, and
there are several claimants for the
distinction. Though Americans hold
that Edison was the first of the Aim
ers, there is no douht that a Trench
man named Louis Aime Augustin le
Prince actually produced lllnis several
years before Edison.
Le Prince was a huge man. lie stood
six feet four inches and was broad In
proportion. He came to this country
as a young man, and at Leeds, in
1SS8. he photographed pictures with a
one leas camera and also made a pro
jector. Ilis invention attracted con
siderable attention, though he was
never able to exploit it commercially,
for he came lo an untimely and mys
terious end. On September Id, 1S90,
he entered a Paris train at Di.ion and
was never seen again. His widow al
ways believed he was the victim of
foul play and that he was "bumped
off" by an unscrupulous gang that
wanted to obtain control of his in
Leeds citizens firmly uphold the
claims of Le Prince to be the In
ventor of the "movies," and he Is
honored In the Yorkshire city this
year by a memorial. ? London Tit-Bits.
