The great train robbery( Visual )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2003 marks the 100th anniversary of the release of "The Great Train Robbery," not only the first western film -- but also the first motion picture produced which contained a coherent plot! It was also one of the very first box office blockbusters, instantly becoming a huge commercial success and spawning many outright imitations. Featuring Gilbert M. "Broncho Billy" Anderson in four separate roles, the 740-foot film catapulted him into some 375 other pictures and set numerous precedents in filmmaking techniques. This 100th anniversary special edition version contains two versions of this historically significant western, the original silent archival version provided by the Library of Congress and a digitally enhanced version with a new music and effects track and color tinted sequences. In addition, we are presenting three other important silent classics, which feature two of the greatest contributors to the heritage of western cinema -- William S. Hart and Tom Mix and one of the most influential filmmakers of all time, D. W. Griffith. "The Heart of Texas Ryan" (1916), featuring the legendary Tom Mix -- one of the most flamboyant, true-life cowboy heroes of the silent era -- is filled with the kind of action Tom Mix fans loved, including a kidnapping, fistfights and a last-minute rescue. The second feature, "Tumbleweeds" (1925) starred the great William S. Hart, in his last and biggest film. Hart co-directed with King Baggott and many consider it worthy of being ranked with "The Covered Wagon" and "The Iron Horse" as a major western epic. The highlight of the film is a spectacular recreation of the Cherokee Strip land rush, which, according to William K. Everson writing in his own A Pictorial History of the Western Film, "was not only splendidly staged and photographed but also edited with a precision and a mathematical rhythm worthy of Eisenstein." As a special bonus the disc also includes one of D. W. Griffith's best films, "The Battle Of Elderbush Gulch" (1913) featuring Lillian Gish and Mae Marsh as two Eastern gals who move out West and encounter hostile Indians. All of these silent films have been enhanced with music and effects tracks and special prologues have been narrated by Will Hutchins (TV's "Sugarfoot"). - Container

Comedy, spectacle and new horizons( Visual )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By 1907 the cinema's initial growing pains had subsided and fairly distinct generic categories of production were established. This volume of The Movies Begin examines some of these integral works that begin to reflect the modern day cinema -- punctuated with authentic hand-tinted lantern slides used during early theatrical exhibition. Visual comedy, with notable elements of slapstick, is represented in Pathé Frères' The Policeman's Little Run (1907), Bangville Police (1913, marking the first appearance of the legendary Keystone Kops) and Max Linder's Troubles Of A Grass Widower (1908). Best remembered today as a major influence on Charlie Chaplin, Linder was one of the first and most popular stars of the cinema. The comic potential of such a basic device as an undercranked camera is exhibited in Pathés Onésime, Horloger (Onésime, Clock-maker, 1912). Alice Guy-Blaché's Making An American Citizen (1912) is an excellent example of the films of social conscience, always an undercurrent beneath the apparently smooth surfaces of commercial productions. Released the very same week was D.W. Griffith's A Girl And Her Trust, a superb film of wide emotional range and great technical virtuosity made near the end of his tenure at the Biograph Company. Nero, Or The Fall Of Rome (1909) strains at conventional film limitations in dimension and duration, looking forward to the revolutionary Italian epics (Cabiria, The Last Days Of Pompeii) that followed a few years later. Equally prophetic are the dazzling animations showcased in the Vitograph Company's Windsor McCay And His Animated Pictures (1911)."--Publisher
