5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Commercial motion pictures were invented at the Edison Laboratory between 1888 and 1893.

In 1894, Edison was the sole producer of motion pictures in the world. Many Edison films continue to be impressive as the company employed such accomplished early directors as John Collins and Alan Crosland

Scar of shame: In no film was the racial theme more apparent than in this story about an ill-matched marriage between a black concert painist and a poor, lower class black woman.

Despite the melodrama, it is a strong statement on the issues of class and the color caste system which existed within the African-American community. This was the first film of the Colored Players Film Corp. of Philadelphia

Harry Langdon : the forgotten clown by Frank Capra( Visual )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the height of his film career, Harry Langdon was considered one of the four best comics of the silent film era. His screen character was that of a wide-eyed, childlike man with a feeble smile, an owlish blink, and an innocent's understanding of the world and the people in it. This video collects the three silent feature films widely acknowledged as his best. Strong man: After a tour of duty in WWI, a witless young Belgian comes to America and seeks out his dedicated pen pal, but his quest for Mary Brown leads him from mishap to comic disaster. Tramp, tramp, tramp: When a destitute shoemaker's son enters a cross-country foot race with hopes of winning the $25,000 prize, spectacular comedy and destruction follow. Long pants: A sheepish young man springs into adulthood and is immediately smitten with a hard-boiled drug-smuggling femme fatale. When she is jailed, he comes to her aid, ushering his fugitive moll through a series of riotous scrapes
