Language 1 Using defining relative clauses

Remember: Using defining relative clauses

You use relative pronouns when you introduce a relative clause:

… nos the first person who produced photos ….

The photos which he took… .

The first public movie which people sow… .


The journey from the first still (still picture) to the first movie (a film which moves) lasted about 70 years. It took another 30 years to go from silent movies to talkies (motion pictures with sound).

1. Eadweard Muybridge was the first person who produced photos of motion. The photos which he took were of a horse. He set up 24 cameras and put a string on the shutter of each one. But it was the horse which took the photos! As it ran, it broke the strings. This opened the shutters. Light fell onto the film and this produced the photos.

2. A famous American inventor, Thomas Edison, invented the Kinetoscope. But it was his assistant who built it. The Kinetoscope was a box with some film and a light bulb. The film showed a series of stills. But a motor moved the film quickly across the light and it became a movie.

3. Edwin Porter directed the first western.

Its title was ‘The Great Train Robbery’.

And it was the first public movie which people saw in the US.

4. They built the first film studio in Hollywood. Stage actors and actresses were more famous than those who acted in movies. But this soon changed and the rise of movie stars began. Charlie Chaplin was one of the first actors who became a star.

5. The first ‘talkie’, ‘The Jazz Singer’, made film history. But two years later it was a silent movie which got the Oscar for Best Film.
