Does anyone have knowledge of Twain's thoughts on cinema?  In "Italian Without a Master" he includes a newspaper listing of Florence attractions which include 2 "spectacoli Cinematagrafici" --  "Quo Vadis" which was playing at the Sala Edison, and "Don Chisciotte" playing at Ciematografo.   Since he met Edison and was later filmed by him, I suspect that he had scene film at some point, especially in Europe.   Any help?
