Zoe-Dan 6_edited-1.jpgThe image of Danielle is forever imprinted in my mind as she sits before my camera spinning this giant “Wheel of Life”. The world had gone mad with optical inventions. Brewster had infected Europe ¬†with his “borrowed” patent of the Kaleidoscope, a few years earlier. He remained forever bitter and angry, that it was instantly copied in London and Paris to the tune of hundreds of thousands of scopes in just three months, his dreams of riches evaporating.

As Danielle watched the flickering images through the slits in drum, I am quite sure she did not realize that Horner’s invention would open the door for a single actor, today, to make enough money, from one movie, to buy a small country anywhere in the world.
