The Blizzard (film #2 on the Picturing a Metropolis disc of Unseen Cinema DVD Boxed Set (Image Entertainment, 2005)). [Category: Early Film & TV]

Panorama of an 1899 New York blizzard. This has the real feel of a glimpse into another time, as well as an amusing element in a guy with a shovel who follows the panorama of the camera, so as to stay on film. A great piece of filmed history. An 1899 Biograph film.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: *****. Overall Rating: *****.
