Australia led the way to longer movies worldwide with "The Story of the Kelly Gang" (1906), a movie about a famous bushranger (an outlaw living in the Australian bush) named Ned Kelly.
Clocking in at just over an hour, it was much longer than other movies of that period. Until then, movie lovers were deemed to have very short attention spans, and movies were kept at five to ten minutes so the audience wouldn't get bored.
