Sneeze IV

This just in from Mr. Ward: "I was reading your blog and decided to IMDB search Fred Ott, star of 'The Sneeze.' Did you know his follow-up film (also from 1894) was called 'Fred Ott Holds a Bird'? Apparently his last film appearance was in 1900 in 'The Kiss,' a remake of the 1896 hit of the same name. Plus, did you know Edison released at least 63 other films in 1894 - among them... Professor Welton's Boxing Cats; Chinese Opium Den; The Cock Fight; Cock Fight, No. 2; Fancy Club Swinger; Rat Killing; Unsuccessful Somersault? Thanks to the internet I can avoid doing real work for hours on end."
