this film is lost -- and is not part of the Kino collection
There are no copies of this film known to scholars and archivists. The Kino collection "The Movies Begin" wrongly notes that the Cock Fight film it includes was produced in 1896. That's incorrect: the film included in the Kino collection is the film IMDb lists as Cock Fight No. 2 (1894). That particular 1-minute film can also be seen on YouTube (at least that's true in September of 2009). Don't be confused by Kino's error; don't post a correction to IMDb claiming that this film is part of the Kino collection "The Movies Begin"; don't add another error to the database. I have checked these facts with Professor Charles Musser, of Yale, whose book on Edison's 1890-1900 films, published by the Smithsonian, is definitive -- at least for now. This film, released by Edison in 1896, is nowhere to be found.
