Best Comedy Movies

Of all the best comedy movies ever made, I’m going to write about the first comedy movie, L’Arroseur Arrose. It was written by Louis Lumière and shot in Lyon, France in 1895. It’s also known as Tables Turned on the Gardener, The Sprinkler Sprinkled, and the Waterer Watered.

It depicts a gardener watering his garden with a water hose. A boy comes and cuts off the water supply to the hose and the gardener is confused. He tries to figure out the problem and of course, looks down the “barrel” of the hose. The boy then steps off of the hose and the water shoots into the face of the gardener knocking off his hat. He quickly catches on and chases and catches the boy. All this happens in complete silence because sound hadn’t been invented yet, well in movies anyway.

This may not have been the first movie ever made but it was ดูหนังออนไลน์ actually the first film with a plot and it really surprised people because of it’s comedic nature. It was the foundation of all comedies to come. Other movies of its time showed someone sneezing or a train arriving, so this movie was quite the leap in entertainment.

I certainly consider it to be a great comedy movie even though it is only around 49 seconds. If you want to see it go to the resource box below. It was the best quality I could find along with some music. The movie itself was actually silent, so the sound was artificially added in recently.

I’m also very surprised at how this movie is still around in it’s original nature. It’s 115 years old! Back then, to see a film, it was almost a miracle but luckily for all of us, it got preserved to see even now, 115 years in the future. Just think, they still had horse-drawn carriages as a main transportation when the movie was made.

It’s always refreshing to see that no matter how advanced we become, we all still have the same sense of humor. I still personally laughed at that short film. It’s just really an experience to really think about all that was happening when the movie was made. I can’t even imagine what life was like. Cinema nowadays is so integrated into our life, and back then, it was a blessing to see.

L’Arroseur Arrosé was not only the first comedy but it was also the first movie to have a poster depicting a scene from the movie, most posters only told what the movie was filmed with and other specifications. It depicts an audience laughing at what is displayed on screen. The shot of what is on screen is when he is actually being sprayed in the face. I guess you could call it the climax of the movie.

Nick loves movies, especially comedies. They are beyond fascinating. There is nothing better than getting lost in a great movie. Read more in his blog here:
