The Miller and the Sweep, 1898

The Miller and the Sweep is a 1898 British short black-and-white silent comedy film, directed by George Albert Smith, featuring a miller carrying a bag of flour fighting with a chimney sweep carrying a bag of soot in front of a windmill, before a crowd comes and chases them away. It was one of the first films made by G.A. Smith, shortly after he first acquired a camera,” and is also, “one of the earliest films to show a clear awareness of its visual impact when projected.” Thank you for watching
