DiCenso Lost Early Works Recipes from the Homeland by Vita Orlando Sinopoli COPYRIGHT, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED English camera pioneer. Brighton Street Scene is, like most films made up until 1888, merely a moving photograph of the titular place. Luke Friese-Greene's following film, Leisurely Pedes- trians, Open Topped Buses and Hansom Cabs with Trotting Horses, no prints are known to still be in existence. Melies' The Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat Star/ore All things considered, we are fortunate to have some of the very first examples of film still in existence. In its birth, film was an experimental medium, essentiaUy a toy for innovative inventors like Thomas Edison and the Lumiere brothers of France. If film preservation was neglected in the first years of cinema as an established medium, there was no cause for it in the late nineteenth century as the survival of the new art was un- certain. And yet, a good number of the early King John, one of the first films based off of Shakespeare's work. By 1892, film was g owing in both length and concept and some of the first narrative films emerged around this time. Here too, animation was born thanks to French artist Charles-l mile Reynaud. His Pauuret Pierrot, of this year, is a fanciful little curio which played at Mus6e Gr6vin along with Le Clown et ses chiens {about a clown and his dogs) and Un bon bock (a comic tale of a saloon keeper and her customers). Neither of Pierrot's companion pieces survived. France was, at the time, the leading force of One of the surviving scenes from Paul's Come Along, Dol films have survived, including most of the films produced by Thomas Edison at America's first film studio, the Black Maria. Inevitably, however, there are some pieces of the puzzle that have gone missing. One of the first lost films is a title-tells-all short directed by William Friese-Greene, an Holland's 8olser en Hesse from 1900. Robert W. Paul's documentary Army Life. film as a new art form, in large part thanks to the Lumiere brothers, Luise and Auguste. Their The Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat Station from 1896 is something of a minor landmark in the development of film, causing a sensation (though descriptions of the shock are likely exaggerated). However, one of the first films from theh" national rival Georges M6li6s, which was in all likelihood meant to be an answer, Arrival of a Train at Vincennes Station survives only in still photos. Indeed, the bulk of M6li6s' early work is now lost, including L'Arroseur (also an imitation of the Lumieres' work L'Arroseur Arros } and Robbing Cleopatra's Tomb from 1899. As the new medium was taking the world by storm, more countries took to the cameras and many of these early global experiments are gone, including La Bandera Argentina, about half of Robert W. Paul's Come Along, Do! and King John (one of the first Shakespeare screen adaptations), both from England. Paul's documentary Army Life is also mostly gone as is Holland's Solser en Hesse. Most of these works exist now only in still frag- ments, but at the time contributed to the growth of cinema into an art form and, though mostly forgotten today, were part of the sensation of the early moving pictures.

ASPARAGUS OMELET 2 cups cut-up fresh, frozen or 1 medium onion (optional} canned asparagus 1/4 cup olive, canola or 4 beaten eggs or equal vegetable oil quantity of egg substitute Salt Cut up fresh asparagus, wash and par boil or steam in a sauce- pan. Set aside and dry with paper towel. To prevent dangerous oil splattering, be sure asparagus are dry before placing in skillet with oil._ Remove skin from onion. Cut onion in half, and cut each half into 1/4-inch long slices. Set aside. Heat oil in skillet before adding asparagus. Fry asparagus slowly for about five minutes, stirring frequently. Add onion to skillet (optional) and fry until onion is slightly browned. Stir frequently. Meantime beat eggs thoroughly in a bowl. Add salt to taste. Skil- let should be well heated before gently pouring beaten eggs in a circular motion over the asparagus/onion mixture. Lower burner. Using spatula, lift mixture slightly. Tip skillet, allowing beaten eggs to slowly drain under the asparagus. Repeat this process on opposite side of skillet until only small portions of the eggs remain on top. Gently shake skillet over burner to keep mixture from sticking to bottom. Carefully slide the mixture onto a platter. Return the mixture face down into the skillet. Fry slowly until all of the eggs have cooked. Slide omelet carefully from skillet onto a platter for serving. VARIATIONS: In place of asparagus, use cut-up green peppers, vinegar peppers, potato pieces, ham, or frankfurters. Cheese of choice and/or mushrooms can be added to the omelet. Another option is to scramble all the ingredients in the skillet after adding the beaten eggs. Stir until beaten eggs cook thoroughly. 1st Generation Perch VITA ORLANDO SINOPOLI Italian-American Vita Orlando Sinopoli Shares with us a deligh(ful recollection of her memories as a child growing up in Boston's "Little Italy" and a collection of Italian family recipes from the homeland.
