Roundhay Garden Scene : Alternate Ending

Alternate Ending

is is true that there is an alternate ending to this film? That the main actor was going around clockwise instead of counter-clockwise?

Re: Alternate Ending

Yes that's not just just a rumor, if you read the original screenplay it calls for CLOCKWISE peregrination. However the clockwise version did not test well with audiences. Le Prince had to bring the entire cast back for re-shoots which put the film way over budget and almost killed the entire project.
