Webster's 1913 Dictionary
\Moving picture\
A series of pictures, usually photographs taken with a
special machine, presented to the eye in very rapid
succession, with some or all of the objects in the picture
represented in slightly changed positions, producing, by
persistence of vision, the optical effect of a continuous
picture in which the objects move in some manner, as that of
some original scene. The usual form of moving pictures is
that produced by the cinematograph.
