Edison the invention of the movies /
Commercial motion pictures were invented at the Edison Laboratory between 1888 and 1893. Perhaps none of the component parts were strictly new, but the ability of Edison and his staff to reorganize them for a specific purpose was an extraordinary cultural achievement. In 1894, Edison was the sole producer of motion pictures in the world. Many Edison films continue to be impressive as the company employed such accomplished early directors as John Collins and Alan Crosland.

Traffic in souls or, while New York sleeps /
An early social commentary on the New York sex trade, this film attempts to sensationalize prostitution, especially forced prostitution. Featuring a number of characters and sub-plots, the film is presented as if it were a documentary. "Even though the United States is the land of opportunity and offers many immigrants options for a better life, many people are unaware of the dangers that can befall them as they enter the country. Such is the case for many immigrant girls who are whisked away by William Trubus and his "International Purity and Reform League." In reality, the girls are sold to brothel owners to support the sex trade in New York. When the League snatches the American sister of Mary Barton, girlfriend of suspicious cop Officer Burke, they have messed with the wrong people. With the law on their side, can Officer Burke and Mary finally bring justice to the operators of the sex trade?" -- Container.
