Georges Méliès: Le Voyage dans la Lune (1902)

a group of astronomers indulged in pataphysics travel to the moon by being shot in a capsule from a giant cannon, are captured by Selenites, escape, and return to the earth (John Oswalt); loosely based on Jules Verne's De la terre à la lune and Autour de la Lune, also on H. G. Wells' The First Men in the Moon, written and directed by Georges Méliès, assisted by his brother Gaston, Georges Méliès being also the lead personage, a guy named Professor Barbenfouillis (wiki); the film runs 14 minutes if projected at 16 frames per second, which was the standard frame rate at the time the film was produced (mittinscat1).

(Georges Méliès)
