The other day the eldest asked me when was slow motion first used in films....I thought that was an excellent question, to which I didn't know the answer.
Does anyone know?
Looking forward to finding out.....

Thanks for your answers.
That's interesting....just from the fact that the cameras were hand cranked makes it inevitable that film makers would've accidently stumbled upon over and under cranked effects.
That means that the projectionist had a massive role to play in the showing of the film. Get it right and it works, get it wrong and.....
Although I do wonder whether it's possible that the projectionist was told when to speed up and slow down due to the operator not being able to keep a constant speed on set...
