Believed to be the first film shot in the United States, Monkeyshines No. 1 is an experimental film made to test the original cylinder format of the Kinetoscope. It was shot by William K.L. Dickson and William Heise for the Thomas Edison labs and shows a blurry figure in white standing in one place making large gestures and is only a few seconds long.
