Slapstick Summer Series: A Step Back | The Runaway Horse (1908)
Of historical importance for being among the group of early chase films. Not the best of the bunch - old-fashioned pacing takes much of the blame for this - but not bad either. Louis J. Gasnier's Le cheval emballé also contains a unique reverse-action shot, which may have been the first of its kind used during a chase sequence.
