The Great Train Robbery still stands as one of the most infamous robberies in British history, but who go the upper end of the robbery? Was a simple game of Monopoly with the authorities to blame for their capture? After the robbery the men took shelter in a safe house in Oxfordshire, they had a lot to celebrate, but those celebrations wouldn't.
The Great Train Robbery produced by Edwin S. Porter in 1903 is frequently acknowledged as the first narrative film. Porter, who had previously worked for Thomas Edison as a cameraman, takes the plot from a story based on a real train robbery, written by Scott Marble in 1896.
