A motorcar collides with the camera in this Cecil Hepworth film.
A horse and cart create a cloud of dust as they pass by. A motorcar follows. The passengers manically gesture for the camera to get out of the way but they collide. Blackness and flashing intertitles, seemingly scratched into the celluloid, read"?? Oh !! Mother will be pleased !!"
The first film to use intertitles, How it Feels to be Run Over introduces the viewer's subjectivity with text.
