"Silent film" covers a vast terrain, from early cinema to the "transitional
period" (1908 - 1917) to the "late silent" era. During this formative time,
the term "documentary" was coined and a vast number of forms, from
actualities to city symphonies to travelogues and feature-length
documentaries, were a regular part of an evening's entertainment in
