Vanity of Existence

"Where I was born and where and how I have lived is unimportant. It is what I have done with where I have been that should be of interest." -Georgia O'Keeffe

This “racy” scene is from the New York stage comedy, “The Widow Jones,” in which May Irwin and John Rice starred. According to Edison film historian C. Musser, the actors staged their kiss for the camera at the request of the New York World newspaper, and the resulting film was the most popular Edison Vitascope film in 1896.
