Ladislaw Starewicz (1882-1965)
The Cameraman's Revenge (1912)
The Cameraman's Revenge (1912, 13 minutes) is about infidelity among the insects, a topic which I dare say has never before or after been attempted on film.
It opens with Mr. Beetle going to town "on business," to stop at "The Gay Dragonfly," a burlesque parlor.
He meets a dancer who he takes to a hotel room... the grasshopper at left wanted her too, though, and he's mad at the beetle's rudeness.. he's also got a movie camera!
