THE STORY OF THE KELLY GANG (1906) is often cited as the first feature-length narrative film. As with many firsts, filmic or otherwise, the claim has an asterisk affixed to it in some way. Hour-long-plus films of sporting events like boxing matches had been made already in the early 19-aughts (is that something I can call that decade?), and even some fiction films had hit the generally accepted feature-length minimum of 40 minutes. Various organizations and institutes set the minimum much higher, but especially up through the 1920s, 40 to 70-minute features were quite common. Even today, 40 minutes is seen as feature-length by many.
Sorry! None of the critics have had a chance to review this movie yet.
