The First Zombie Movie In 1917, with World War One still raging, French director Abel Gance was making an anti-war film called J‘Accuse. A lead character dreams dead soldiers of the world get off the ground or dig their way out of graves to march to their homes and dare the people back home to show they appreciate the sacrifice or tell them it was worth it. This vision comes literally true when dead soldiers begin marching into his village.
The First Sex Movie It’s another Edison movie called The Widow Jones. A rather portly lady is embarrassed by the affections of her male counterpart. The two then engage in a chaste, really quite sweet kiss. And when it is screened, there are public protests.
