Can someone share a history or origin of why 35mm FL was the "chosen one" in the first place?

It always amazes me that threads like this get started, and then so many folks are willing to expound at length about things that they are not real clear on. There is so much interesting (and factual) information on the web about the history of photography, just a Google search away. Come on, breathe the air outside this forum occasionally.

He got the facts. The question was a little unclear as to whether or not the OP was referring to 35 film format and the use of the term FF or whether he was referring to 50mm focal length. This was claified by those who responded. There was general agreement from all who responded re the historical background of these terms (both interpretations of the question were covered.)

In what way were the responses "responding at length about things that they are not real clear on"
