A YouTuber finds a remarkable film:

Shot and hand-colored - frame by frame - at the end of the 19th Century.  Still captivating today, but just imagine what it must have been like to watch an image move and transform like this in 1899!  A beautiful example of the earliest cinematic ART. One of my three favorite Lumière films which I've uploaded.
