Les Createurs de la Mode. Later, bigger theaters would be built allowing larger audiences to see longer films projected on a bigger screens. An actuality -- a short non-fiction film -- of the execution of the assassin of McKinley carried out from the description of an eyewitness. Motion pictures became popular, first as single-viewer kinetoscopes, then as films projected for mass audiences. Edison's company, Thomas A. Edison, Inc. Guglielmo Marconi, the "father of radio", took a simple interest in "Hertzian Waves" and invented one of the most important new media's of the new century.
Having first experimented with radio transmissions in the attic of his parent's home, Marconi traveled to England in a search for investors. There, he founded the Wireless Telegraph and Signal Company Limited which began building radio equipment in To publicize the new invention, Marconi gave numerous demonstration, including one to Queen Victoria. In , Marconi successfully transmitted the first radio signals across the Atlantic Ocean.
One of Edison's most famous 'actualities', this eight-minute action film depicted a robbery by Butch Cassidy. Enormously popular, it is one of the first films to tell a coherent story. Later, when the audiences became bored with "real" events, Edison and his company began producing action, drama and comedic films. Only days after and earthquake and fire destroyed much of San Francisco, the first "newsreels" were there to capture the devastation. This disaster would be the first major event of its kind to be captured for the viewing audiences around the United States and the world, though much the "ongoing destruction" was staged for the cameras.
Girl meets boy: Evelyn Nesbit, a year-old showgirl, enjoyed some, but not all of the affections of Standford White, the famous New York architect who designed Madison Square Garden. Boy meets girl: Henry K. Thaw, an "eccentric" millionaire met and eventually married Evelyn, but grew to hate her former seducer, White.
Boy flies into a jealous rage and kills wife's ex-lover: Thaw shot White as he entertained on the roof garden of Madison Square Garden and was immediately arrested. Press has field day: supposedly even President Theodore Roosevelt followed the coverage in the newspapers. Justice served? Thomas Edison — having already conceived, built and marketed an amazing number of devices like the motion picture camera — invents the electric light.
Now taken for granted, the electric light changes society. It became much easier for people to to stay up late in the evening and enjoy more social activities. The night was somewhat tamed by the spread of street lamps, headlights and illuminated signs. The stars disappear in urban areas, and life becomes a hour experience with the simple flick of a switch. The era before and during the s is known as the age of yellow journalism, when sensational headlines and lurid stories were the norm. It was also a time when many determined journalists exposed corruption in government, the unfair treatment of factory workers, and the privileges of the upper class.
McClure's Magazine , owned by Samuel McClure and originally established as a general interest magazine, moved into the business of muckraking, exposing the faults of expansion and industrialization. These two trends — yellow journalism and muckraking — helped newspapers and magazines become the dominant form of mass media. One of the most memorable stories from the era, the sinking of the U. Maine , would help to propel the United States to war with Spain. Advertising grew and promoted a culture of consumption. Magazines such as Call's Magazine and The Saturday Evening Post took advantage of advertising to increase their circulation and still keep subscription prices low.
General interest and ladies magazines also flourished. Magazines such as Good Housekeeping and Vogue began targeting niche markets: homemakers and fashion-oriented women. Between and the circulation of monthly periodicals went from 18 million to 64 million. Professor Emeritus Rick Musser :: rmusser ku.
