A standalone final scene, separate from the narrative, presents a medium close-up of the leader of the outlaws, who empties his pistol point-blank directly into the camera.

In the years leading up to The Great Train Robbery , the film industry was marked by much innovation and variety.

Meanwhile, English filmmakers working in and around Brighton , a group later nicknamed the " Brighton School ", made many innovations in narrative film grammar, developing framing and cutting conventions that would later become industry standards.

Edwin S. Porter had won acclaim making cameras, film printers, and projectors; however, after his workshop was destroyed by a fire, he accepted a special commission for the Edison Manufacturing Company in His task to improve Edison's existing projecting equipment was a marked success, and Porter was given a regular job as the cameraman for Edison's New York film studio.

He began attempts to bring Edison films to a similar level of achievement, [2] later recalling:. The Edison studio, facing growing competition from other American companies, welcomed Porter's ambitious plans.

His initial jobs for the studio were inventing sight gags and playing occasional roles, but he was soon working with Porter on creative collaborations.

Porter and possibly Anderson drew on various sources when planning the scenario for The Great Train Robbery.

For the film's title and basic concept, Porter looked to Scott Marble 's The Great Train Robbery , a popular stage melodrama that had premiered in Chicago in and had been revived in New York in Their initial scheme is for a mole planted in the company to make off with the gold before it leaves Missouri by train; this plan goes awry, and only leads to an innocent man's arrest.

However, using information received at a Texas mountain saloon, the rest of the gang are still able to stop the train, blast open the car containing the gold, and bring it back to their secret hideout in a Red River canyon.

The United States Marshals Service tracks down the gang and finally defeats them in a climactic fight, with cowboys and Native Americans drawn into the fray.

For the narrative style of the film, Porter likely drew freely on various recent popular films, made by other filmmakers experimenting with elaborate storytelling.

Barnes as the leader of the outlaws, Walter Cameron as the sheriff, Porter's colleague Anderson in three small roles the murdered passenger, the dancing tenderfoot, and one of the robbers , and many Edison workers among the extras.

Blair Smith was one of the camera operators. Porter's filmic style for The Great Train Robbery was not on the cutting edge for ; it is comparable to numerous other films released around the same time, such as The Escaped Lunatic , a popular Biograph Studios comedy about wardens chasing an escapee from a mental institution, and Runaway Match , a British Gaumont film featuring an extended car chase sequence.

Smith and Laura Bayley and released months before The Great Train Robbery , is far more sophisticated in its editing and framing.

The film also leaves many narrative points ambiguous, requiring explanations to be filled in by a live narrator or by audience imaginations. However, the film successfully collected many popular themes and prevalent techniques of the time into a single accessible narrative.

These three shots add an edge of realism and immediacy, with the frame following the action if recording real life in a documentary style; one of these shots, showing the robbers making off with their loot, even requires the mounted camera to attempt a tricky diagonal pan, creating a jagged effect.

The final shot, in which Barnes fires at the camera in a framing reminiscent of a wanted poster , is the film's only close-up , and does not function as part of the plot.

A life size picture of Barnes, leader of the outlaw band, taking aim and firing point blank at each individual in the audience.

This effect is gained by foreshortening in making the picture. The resulting excitement is great. This section of the scene can be used either to begin the subject or to end it, as the operator may choose.

The catalogue's informal approach to where the scene should be placed was not unique to The Great Train Robbery ; Porter's adaptation of Uncle Tom's Cabin , released earlier in , had included a boat race scene that was variously advertised as Scene 5 where it would make some narrative sense or as Scene 10 where it would not.

Worthy of your time. Kevin M. W Super Reviewer. Sep 06, Oh, so boring Sure there's a good cast, but they're not even doing anything exciting anyway.

Aj V Super Reviewer. Aug 10, A great film with brilliant period detail and fun performances from Connery, Sutherland and Lesley-Anne Down god, she's hot!

It's almost like a period version of Ocean's Shame the dvd transfer is so rubbish. Hope they bring out a better version on blu-ray.

David S Super Reviewer. Jun 15, Writer and director Michael Crichton's highly enjoyable tongue-in-cheek crime caper period drama, is based on his script for his own bestselling novel "The Great Train Robbery," which in turn was based on a real historical event.

It was deemed impossible to rob a moving railway train back in , so a dapper and cunning master thief named Edward Pierce, played sensationally by Sir Sean Connery, who is so devilishly charming, in a polished, stylish performance has quite the challenge ahead of him if he wants to steal a shipment of gold bullion from an English train outfitted with armed security guards and all manner of locks.

Enlisting the aid of his clever beautifully girlfriend Miriam, played wonderfully by the ravishing Lesley-Anne Down and the jovial professional safecracker and pickpocket Agar, played brilliantly by Donald Sutherland, he sets his ingenious and wildly intricate plan in motion with his lovable troupe of rogues.

Astute direction by the late Crichton, who has mounted a very handsome well-crafted production filled with attentive period detail.

During the exciting climactic heist Connery did his own dangerous and impressive stunt work, in which he races on the top of a moving train, which is edge of your seat fun.

This was legendary Academy Award winning cinematographer Geoffrey Unsworth last film, he passed away shortly before the film's release, and his stupendous lensing for this motion picture is typically noteworthy, as is the rousing score by the late great Jerry Goldsmith.

A hell of good time, and a must-see! Highly Recommended. Danny R Super Reviewer. See all Audience reviews. There are no approved quotes yet for this movie.

In , the most common American film venue was vaudeville houses, where films were exhibited as part of a varied bill of entertainment; other informal venues also sometimes showed films.

To secure copyright, they submitted a rough cut of the film about fifteen feet longer than the final cut to the Library of Congress , where it survives as a paper print.

The Great Train Robbery was a major commercial success for the Edison company. Despite its wide success and imitators, The Great Train Robbery did not lead to a significant increase in Western-themed films; instead, the genre continued essentially as it had before, in a scattered mix of short actualities and longer stories.

Porter continued to make films for more than a decade after, usually in a similar editing style to The Great Train Robbery , with few additional technical innovations.

One historian commented that later Porter efforts like The Count of Monte Cristo were "if anything a retrogression from The Great Train Robbery and had less innate cinema sense.

The plot is very simple, the film is focused and I found myself rooting for the thieves! Sign In. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends.

The resulting street demonstration in Odessa brings on a police massacre. Among the earliest existing films in American cinema - notable as an early film to present a narrative story to tell - it depicts a group of cowboy outlaws who hold up a train and rob the passengers.

But from a historical perspective, it's fascinating, and is an excellent example of the use of film editing, an art form then in its infancy and now an award category recognized every year at the Oscars.

Before this movie, it wasn't customary to tell multiple story lines simultaneously, but here, various activities going on in different locations are intercut to create suspense.

Griffith would use this technique much more ambitiously and combine it with many other developing film techniques in "The Birth of a Nation" over ten years later, but credit must be given to "Train Robbery" for blazing a trail.

Also, this is the movie famous for the shot of an outlaw shooting a gun directly at the camera. I can't imagine what effect this had on audiences at the time, who were probably diving behind their chairs for cover.
