United States USA Date:1935 Duration:23 sec Sound:Yes
Combination revolver and miniature movie camera invented by O.W. Atkins of Los Angeles. 1935 film opens showing a policeman holding a revolver (unloaded) pointed directly at the camera. A small camera is attached under the gun barrel. A side view of the revolver shows a cutaway of the movie camera attached underneath. The camera's mechanism moves the film. Next, a police officer is seen standing and pointing the gun-camera. Then in an enactment, a round camera view, ostensibly from the gun-camera, shows a man running toward the officer and being shot down by him. Next, a man in civilian clothes examines a strip of motion picture film from the gun-camera.
