EtymologyEdit

From Middle English filme, from Old English filmen(film, membrane, thin skin, foreskin), from Proto-Germanic *filminją(thin skin, membrane) (compare Proto-Germanic *felma-(skin, hide)), from Proto-Indo-European *pélno-mo(membrane), from *pel-(to cover, skin). Cognate with Old Frisian filmene(thin skin, human skin), Dutch vel(sheet, skin), German Fell(skin, hide, fur), Swedish fjäll(fur blanket, cloth, scale), Norwegian fille(rag, cloth), Lithuanian plėvē(membrane, scab), Russian плева́(plevá, membrane), Ancient Greek πέλμα(pélma, sole of the foot). More at fell. Sense of a thin coat of something is 1577, extended by 1845 to the coating of chemical gel on photographic plates. By 1895 this also meant the coating plus the paper or celluloid.
