    Cool, but 1) about half of it is just repeated footage, and 2) it's very jerky and too fast and therefore a little frustrating to watch. If you remove the repeated parts and use some software that I'm sure is out there that can smooth it out, it would be much better.

    There is no way this is the "first" such film. This is a very common genre, in fact it's quite *old* by this point. They had started mounting cameras on trains, cars etc 20 or 30 years before this. There's a popular production company who made "Hales Tours" who invented this genre called the "Phantom Ride" cinema. It is called a "travelling shot" and from the "cinema of attractions" era, so PRE-NARRATIVE cinema. And in 1926 they've already invented sound cinema!
