"One Large Buttered Tub, Please."Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
I had a long, sometimes troubling history, from a stampede in a Paris Salon over a hundred years ago, to yesterday's Smoking Gun.
A hearing-impaired inventor took a lot of credit for me, yet had his troubles as would the flyer son, heir to the fortune of a drill bit king. He would also be credited, but for too much exposure.
As strange as it sounds, for many, my 'Golden' age was in black and white, while today others feel I'm only eye candy in color.
And like a good child, once I was only seen and not heard. And as Dave might say, I'm 'full of stars'.
HintOne last clue if you need it. Once I only cost a nickel. Priced for the working class, I first recorded in 1895.
AnswerA Motion Picture or same by any other name. Thomas Edison was the inventor. The first motion-picture studio made 'The Kiss' (1896), which was the first film ever made of a couple kissing in cinematic history. It was also the first film to be criticized as scandalous and brought demands for censorship. Howard Hughes was the aviator heir. The Motion Picture Association of America withdrew its seal of approval for his controversial 'sexy' western epic about Billy the Kid titled 'The Outlaw' (1943). Dave Bowman was from the epic film '2001: A Space Odyssey' (1968). One of the first films was made in 1895 by the Lumiere brothers titled 'Workers Leaving the Lumiere Factory'.
