Katharine Hepburn wrote a biography about the making of The African Queen. The book was titled: The Making of the African Queen: Or How I Went to Africa With Bogart, Bacall and Huston and Almost Lost My Mind The movie came out in 1951. The book came out in 1987. I'm guessing someone will find an earlier book, but it's the first one I could think of.

Perhaps the earliest remake is The Squaw Man: The Squaw Man (1914), followed by The Squaw Man (1918), asserting the first full-length feature remake was in 1918. These films--and even the subsequent The Squaw Man (1931)--were filmed by Cecil B. DeMille. From Wikipedia: The Squaw Man went on to become the only movie successfully filmed three times by ...

I haven't seen the film, but given the manner of the kiss you've described I'd say no, it's not the first gay kiss. I'd back this up by pointing to the fact that no gay/lesbian cinema websites, or record collecting books like the Guinness Book of Records, mention it as being the first gay kiss. I think if you were to take a kiss like that as being ...

Rear projection techniques came after filming in "the real world", as the filming of rear projection requires that the camera and projector be synchronised to avoid shutter flash. This technology did not exist in the silent era, so any motor vehicle filming would have been done live. Its probably worth noting, though, that the filming was usually done with ...

I think, it is more difficult to put a camera in a automobile or on a truck then on a vehicle on rails. I found some examples of early shots, but I'm not sure if they fit your criteria of inside a car. The shots I found are from a car, not inside. I found some very early snipplet with a scene from a rail bases car: Algier 1896: ...

For the second time today, I find myself submitting Mädchen in Uniform from 1931 as an answer... Though there were various gay stereotypes in film before it, I struggle to find an earlier movie that had a lesbian character (in this movie a 14 year old student in love with her female teacher) that actually confesses her love. It also features a lesbian kiss ...

One candidate for a full feature film is Anders als die Andern (Germany, 1919) (english Different from the Others) Plot summary from wikipedia: Veidt portrays a successful violinist, Paul Körner, who falls in love with one of his male students. A sleazy extortionist threatens to expose Körner as a homosexual. Flashbacks show us how Körner became aware ...

Mädchen in Uniform from 1931 about a girls boarding school must be a serious contender. From Wiki: The film was groundbreaking in a number of ways: firstly for its all-female cast; secondly for its sympathetic portrayal of lesbian "pedagogical eros" (see Gustav Wyneken) and homoeroticism [...] and thirdly for its co-operative and profit-sharing financial ...

OK, There's 3 to choose from, depending on your exact specs. Sleep (1963) (US) Yaadein (1964) (Hindi) Portrait Of Jason (1967) (US) Sleep (1963) - This is a 5½ hour Andy Warhol film that is just what it sounds like; one man sleeping for 5½ hours. It was shown in art houses in NYC for a limited run. Yaadein (1964) - A Hindi film about a guy who comes ...

I'm happy to be proven wrong, but I'm going to say Yaadein, a 1964 Indian film. From its wiki: The film is soliloquy of a man who comes home to find that his wife and son are not at home, he assumes that they have left him and reminiscences his life with them, and scared of his life without them, he regrets his past indiscretions. I list it ...

Rękopis znaleziony w Saragossie (English title: The Saragossa Manuscript) (1965) is the earliest example that comes to mind: The maximum depth of nesting of the story is Fraquita's tale, which begins in Q-2-j-(1)-(a). If we see Alfonso's experiences as all being at a single level, that makes The Saragossa Manuscript a story-within-a-story having seven ...

Grand Prix (1966) contains some short shots like this (watch the trailer closely). Likewise Città violenta (1970), The Cars That Ate Paris (1974), Death Race 2000 (1975), The Gumball Rally (1976) and The Spy Who Loved Me (1977).

As far as I can make out, the first feature length film based off a comic strip was Little Annie Rooney (1925) starring Mary Pickford. There were certainly other shorts made before then, going back as far as 1898, but you specified over 40 mins in length.
