1915
  • 1915-1919: Charlie Chaplin goes into business for himself, producing and starring in a series of pioneering Slapstick comedies at Essenay, Mutual, and First National studios, including:
  • The Birth of a Nation — The movie that invented the feature film as we know it. Values Dissonance to the max today, but the first blockbuster hit at the time.
  • The Cheat
  • Fatty's Tintype Tangle
  • Les Vampires — A crime serial in 10 parts that ran into 1916. Featured criminal gang the Vampires and a Journalist and his friend trying to stop them. One of the longest films ever made, running to over 6 and a half hours.

1919
  • Anders als die Andern ("Different from the Others"), notable as the first film to argue for tolerance of homosexuality.
  • Broken Blossoms — The most sympathetic portrayal of Asians for decades (despite the Yellowface), and probably D. W. Griffith's triumph as a director of actors (and with a disturbing story to boot).
  • The Master Mystery
  • The Sentimental Bloke — Australian classic, recently re-mastered and available on DVD.
