Do you know The Motorist?

The Motorist (1906, Walter R Booth) is a silent short comedy dealing with a couple who exceed the speed limit and fly off the face of the Earth into outer space whilst fleeing the police. Motoring through the solar system, their car touches down on the sun and goes for a spin around Saturn’s rings.
