Corner in the Wheat - (1909) Emphasis on Acting (see: vaudeville) softer light (compare: Lumière) Depth of Field Symbolism more intricately woven into narrative (meta-narrative of cultural values) Musketeers of Pig Alley - (1912) More intricate set Words (written) are driving narrative Allows for a more complex story Space is being played with (see: going through doors to multiple connected locations) Heteronormative reconciliation (may form base for formulaic hollywood) **Disclosure: The above is based off of a subjective analysis of the films presented. Furthermore, it is used to exemplify the means by which the filmic language grew. Each film presented adds or builds off of the previous film analyzed. Films may contain multiple ideals but if discussed in a prior film the ideal is subject to isolation. **
