Heavenly Bodies

heavenly bodies

Visionary 1920s film containing imaginative astrophysical visualizations.

“One great riddle of the world was solved when Sir Isaac Newton discovered what holds the worlds in their places.”

All about gravity, planets and the solar system. Great shot of sudden loss of gravity: man’s hat and cane suddenly fly off his head, then he’s lifted off the ground clutching tree branches; we next see the earth exploding!!

Production details unknown but from the 1920’s
