The Birth of a Nation
A profoundly influential and controversial film, this is the epic story of two families, one northern and one southern, during and after the Civil War. D. W. Griffith's masterful direction combines brilliant battle scenes and tender romance with a vicious portrayal of African-Americans. It energized the NAACP and also inspired…

Fantomas in the Shadow of the Gullotine
Based on the phenomenally popular French pulp novellas, Louis Feuillade's outrageous, ambitious Fantomas series became the gold standard of espionage serials in pre-WWI Europe and laid the foundation for such immortal works as Feuillade's own Les Vampires and Fritz Lang's Dr. Mabuse films. In the first of the series of…
A Fool There Was
The original "Vamp," Theda Bara stars as an exotic temptress who lures a once faithful man away from his wife. Only a handful of Bara's films survive today, but this is the drama for which she is best remembered. The film shocked audiences and brought something unexpected to the silent…
The Floor Walker
Part of the Series: Chaplin's Mutual Comedies
The Floorwalker, Chaplin's first film under his landmark contract with Lone Star-Mutual, has embezzlement as its subject.

When he discovers his error, he simply backs up the engine into the fire station, with…
The Vagabond
Part of the Series: Chaplin's Mutual Comedies
The Vagabond, Chaplin's third Mutual film, was an important step in Chaplin's career, in which he interweaves pathos as an integral part of the comedy. He imposed an unlikely happy ending on The Vagabond, in which the gypsy drudge demands that the car she is being taken away be turned…
One A.M.
Part of the Series: Chaplin's Mutual Comedies
One A.M., Chaplin's fourth Mutual, is an impressive piece of virtuosity, a solo performance except for a brief appearance by Albert Austin as a taxi driver. The film is a tour de force of Chaplin's superb pantomime and comic creativity performed in a restricted space, a brilliant experiment that he…
The Count
Part of the Series: Chaplin's Mutual Comedies
The fifth film in the Mutual series, The Count, further develops the situations of films in which Charlie impersonates a man of means in order to underscore the contrast between rich and poor--one of his favorite themes.
The Pawnshop
Part of the Series: Chaplin's Mutual Comedies
In the sixth Mutual film, Charlie is a pawnbroker's assistant in a pawnshop that evokes the London of Chaplin's childhood. The film is rich in comic transposition, a key element to Chaplin's genius. The apex of such work in the Mutuals is the celebrated scene in The Pawnshop in which…
