Robert W. Paul was a pioneer of British film. After building his own version of the Edison Kinetoscope, he worked with Birt Acres to create the first film camera ever to be made in England. After falling out with his business partner, he went into competition with him with the creation of Britain's first commercially produced 35mm projector. In order to make the most of his technology, he focused more and more on making films, starting with actualities before moving into trick comedies with the stage magician, Walter Booth. He is also credited with designing and building the first film studio in Britain. He left the crowded market in 1910 to pursue other interests.

This is a list of some of his films.
