* ''Film/{{The Ring|1927}}'' was the fourth film Creator/AlfredHitchcock directed and the second to be released. It's a [[SportsStories Sports Story]], the only one of his career. It's the only film for which he got sole credit for the screenplay. It doesn't have any of the plot elements that would become typical of Hitchcock--no crime, no murder, no one WrongfullyAccused, and it isn't a thriller (it's a simple LoveTriangl drama). And he doesn't have a CreatorCameo.

* ''[[Film/RoadTo Road to Singapore]]'' is a fairly typical adventure-comedy movie, and doesn't do much in the way of BreakingTheFourthWall.

** WOW. Someone has a beef with Dr. No. Don't tell them about the rebooted films.

*** It is absolutley arguable that with ''Disney/{{Maleficent}}'' Disney were making a live action retelling from the prespective of the antagonist, rather than a straight up live action remake. Hence the title. Claiming that it was the first in a series of related films is facile because that claim is based simply on the fact that the same studio made the films. This would be like saying ''Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice'' and ''Film/ChittyChittyBangBang'' are part of the same film series because they both came from the pen of "Creator/IanFleming" and made by Eon Studios.

* Creator/BusterKeaton didn't invent his famous deadpan "[[TheStoic Great Stone Face]]" persona until breaking out as a star of his own films in TheTwenties. Viewers of his early work, such as his fourteen films with Creator/FattyArbuckle, may be surprised to see a Keaton who smiles, laughs, cries, and mugs for the camera. See ''Film/ConeyIsland'' (1917).

** Amongst Dreamwork's first films, ''WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt'', ''WesternAnimation/TheRoadToElDorado'', ''WesternAnimation/SpiritStallionOfTheCimarron'' and ''WesternAnimation/SinbadLegendOfTheSevenSeas'' had 2-D animation instead of the now-omnipresent CGI. Also, ''Prince'' and ''Spirit'' were serious dramas, and ''Prince'' and ''Road'' are Disney-style musicals, both in stark comparison to the zaniness they developed by ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' (even if later franchises like ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'' and ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'' showed that they could still be a little more serious when called for).
