The film, which is just one minute long, depicts Joe dying in the freezing snow against a churchyard wall.
As he falls to the ground a local watchman tries to help him and cradles him as he dies.
The footage, which was directed by film pioneer George Albert Smith, was handed to the BFI in 1954, by a collector in Brighton who had known Smith.
