Very good, 10/10, question though: Why did you use an EU map instead just a map of Europe? I can tell because Switzerland and Bosnia are the same color as the ocean 🤔

Edison is a big fraud! I doubt he personally even invented anything. He stole the inventions or had other people underneath him invent things. If anything, he was probably what a producer is to a film, ironically.

I don't believe that he just disappeared because he was not completely satisfied with his work. Also, he would not abandon his family. And where would he hide? He had no money and he's a giant even by today's standards.

This episode is so sad. Firstly, he (though I don’t know why) was apparently unable to obtain proper patents. Secondly, he was (presumably) murdered and by whom it is unknown. And thirdly, the credit for his invention for which he should be famous worldwide, was given to Edison. All that being said, I do not think Edison did it, as he did not start working on his own motion picture machine until later, so he was not even thinking about it yet, meaning he had no motive.

Patents are ridiculous to get. My company tried to get a patent for a cover on one of our non-reflective coating machines and they stated it was a dog bowl and already patented. We had to go through a lot of revisions to finally get it approved.

To be honest, I doubt Thomas Edison had any involvement in killing Louis Le Prince. I think Mr. Edison was a resourceful genius who used often aggressive tactics to position himself more favorably; for this, I actually respect him more. I do see it unfortunate that Louis Le Prince was unable to see the fruits of his labor; however, I feel Thomas Edison still deserves some credit for his camera -- as he did develop it without direct copying being performed.

Theory 3 doesn't make sense, if he was in debt why make himself Dissapear? If he that intelligent, he would've figured out all the money and fame he could've made with this invention. Like Ryan said, if I saw the invention in 1890,i would've that it was bewitched too.

My cinema professor actually told us about this. I remember him saying that Edison had stolen the idea from a French man and passing it up as his own. Edison also attempted to steal the limelight from the Lumiere brothers, who invented the cinematograph, they filmed 'Workers Leaving the Factory' which was amazing for its time and contrary to Edison Kinetoscope, it was smaller and had the ability to be carried around easily. I encourage everyone who is interested in true cinema, to read up on the Lumiere brothers, Edison and the Motion Picture Patent Company, it is fascinating.
