Cinema as you note was invented in 1895. But it was still in its infancy in the 1910s.
Yes, but you also said that its “birth” was in the 1930s. “Invented” = Born. Jeeze Louise, quit with the dodgeball game.

Erm, don't you mean the 2nd decade? We're talking about the 1910s, right?

For sure…but it’s not an untapped era in movieland. Plenty have already been made. I collect adventure films set during that 'turn-of-the-century' time period and have tonnes & tonnes of ‘em! (Although my focus is mainly late Victorian.) Are you looking for recommendations?

It certainly doesn’t show in your numerous other threads about the 1950s and ‘60s.
