Rescued by Rover: Rescued by Rover is a film about a dog. Not only is it a film about a dog it is also a film about the kidnaping of a young baby by an old woman. With these two classical Hollywood ingredients and some stunning dialogue, (It's silent!), Rescued by Rover really hits a nerve. The repeated shots provide some interest in what, surprisingly, is an entertaining example of early cinema, canine heroics and a man wearing mascara.

This 1905 film from Cecil Hepworth's studio was a massive hit in its day, and it is quite well made for the period. The camera is static and positioned directly in front of the action for most scenes, but on one occasion at least it chooses a slightly oblique angle which stands out amongst what now looks like purely routine and unimaginative camera positioning. The storyline is one that would be repeated frequently over the next 50 years or so: a child in peril saved by a faithful family dog. The dog here is played by Blair, the Hepworth family pet, and he's a handsome creature. The character he plays is incredibly bright as well, knowing exactly which part of town the family's baby has been taken. The film plays on the middle-classes fear of the lower classes: the villain is an alcoholic down-and-out woman living in an attic. It all looks very simplistic today, but it's a good example of how early filmmakers were slowly coming to grips with the tools at their disposal.
