That's exactly how I felt about it...one of my brothers got a Viewmaster "projector" for Christmas one year, it projected the images large on a wall, of course not stereo...we never used it, the fun was looking into the viewer.

I know that Edison's first go at motion images was called the Kinetoscope, something people had to look into individually.

I LOVE that stuff... Cool

I think I've read that Edison's patent included perforated film for advancing it, and I know his machine was successful enough that his machines were set up and people popped money into them.

What would our world be like if Thomas Edison had never lived?

And what did the gentlemen of the day prefer to watch on their Kinetographs? I don't have to tell you...

I found this link to one of the first pieces of moving pictures (just a couple of seconds) on a King Kong site the other day...

The joke there was that Peter Jackson had bought the rights and was proposing a four hour remake of it.... Smiley

I recently acquired the Superman reels on eBay and I'm working on adding scans to my site.  It's slow going, though, as I need a special scanner I don't often have access to, plus the images have taken on a reddish cast over the years so there's some meticulous Photo-shopping involved.  But stay tuned.

As for the Adam West Batman, yes he did get the GAF treatment, and it involved special photography during the filming of the first Catwoman two-parter.  Scott Sebring's got a Flash version up at his wonderful "Batfriend" website.  Here's a direct link (you'll need the Flash viewer):
