On a sadder note, Sarah Whitley died only 10 days after the film was made and Louis Le Prince mysteriously disappeared from a train in 1890. Le Prince's body and luggage were never found, but, over a century later, a police archive was found to contain a photograph of a drowned man who could have been him. His disappearance allowed ThomasEdison to take the credit for the invention of motion pictures, but he has been heralded as 'The Father of Cinematography', in current times.

* JustForFun/TheTropelessTale: This may just be the closest possible, although Oskar Fischinger's WesternAnimation/{{Allegreto}} gives it some competition due to having even ''less'' content despite a longer run time. Wait, [[LogicBomb that makes a trope itself.]]

Added DiffLines:

* RealityHasNoSoundtrack: The film has no sound at all, as it was made long before sound on film was invented.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The film is this to cinema as a whole. There is no story or narrative, no characterization, no acting, no color, no attempt at film language, no special effects, its shot at 12 rather than 24 frames per second, and the film is only two seconds long.
