Note to Ginny: The French and the Americans have never agreed who invented the cinema, but to be honest, the l’homme team makes the better case: the Lumière brothers staged the first exhibition with their Cinématographe projector, and Georges Méliès’ A Trip to the Moon told the first fictional story using cinematic effects. But at least we get credit for rock and roll.
