DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Brown recalls the fire incident that has happened at the Bazar de la Charite--an annual event held under the auspices of Catholic high society. By one account, M. Normandin's assistant, M. Bellac, came rushing out of the cinema, has found Baron de Mackau and has told him frantically that the movie projector has burst into flames. De Mackau has begged to keep quiet and has thought of how to alert the 1600 or 1700 people regarding of the situation without causing panic. An investigation later has determined that a match struck to light the projectionist's lamp that had caused the fire, but Bellac may have failed to take an important precaution when operating the cinematograph, in which the intense glow produced by a controlled explosion of oxygen and ether inside an iron box containing chalk was focused through a lens at gelatin or celluloid film.
