As the Lumière brothers’ invention began its triumphant global expansion, it could not ignore the growing popularity of snooker. At the dawn of the 20th century, either a comedian would appear on the screens, eliciting laughter from the audience, or an inventor or a reporter with the surname Snooker. In the 1930s, Austin Trevor, who played Hercule Poiret, picked up a cue and demonstrated his ability to play snooker to an appreciative audience. Despite the relative paucity of films dedicated to snooker, they do exist and we collect and publish all the information about them.
