What Happened on Twenty-third Street, New York City.

The short film What Happened on Twenty-third Street, New York City was released in August, 1901.

Depicting a couple walking down the street in New York, the woman’s skirts are lifting by air when she walks over a grate.

While it only runs for 77 seconds, the film is credited with providing inspiration for similar scenes in movies in the decades afterwards.
