Up a Wall

In 1902, Georges Méliès created a comical little film that showed a dancer running up a wall and performing handsprings in mid-air.  The film, titled The Human Fly, can be viewed below. 

The film stands today as a forerunner to a number of popular films.

Fred Astaire in Royal Wedding (1950)

Lionel Richie in "Dancing on the Ceiling" music video (1986)

Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Inception (2010)
