HISTORY

The Biograph catalog summarized this film as follows: “A sharply contested game between two crack teams of Canadian players.”
       Hockey Match, Quebec was one of at least fourteen American Mutoscope titles filmed in Quebec, Canada, in 1898. Among the others were Canadian Artillery Marching on Snow Shoes; The Snow Shoe Club; Canadian Outdoor Sports; Children Coasting; Coasting in Canada [No. 1]; Coasting in Canada [No. 2]; Coasting Scene in Canada; Life Saving: Quebec Fire Department [No. 1]; Life Saving: Quebec Fire Department [No. 2]; Quebec Fire Department; Quebec Fire Department Drill [No. 1]; Quebec Fire Department Drill [No. 2]; and Quebec Fire Department Drill [No. 3] (all 1898, see entries).
       See also Edison's Hockey Match on the Ice (1898) and Biograph's Hockey Match on the Ice at Quebec, Canada (1901).
       The American Mutoscope Company was co-founded in Dec 1895 by former Edison Manufacturing Company inventor William K. L. Dickson (who left Edison in Apr of that year), fellow inventors Herman Casler and Harry Marvin, and businessman Elias Koopman. Their Mutoscope, which originally made flip-card peep show movies, soon rivaled Thomas Edison’s Kinetoscope (see Edison Kinetoscopic Records for 1893). In the summer of 1896, when Edison introduced the Vitascope 35mm projector, American Mutoscope immediately came out with its own 68mm projector that offered a superior image. In 1899, the company changed its name to the American Mutoscope and Biograph Company, then shortened it nine years later to the Biograph Company. ...
