Disc 1: I really enjoyed a couple of the films. "The Breath of a Nation" (1919) is one of the few films I've seen from the teens where the humor hasn't been dumbed down to the lowest common denominator. "Skyscraper Symphony" (1929) is an example of another direction seldom explored in the medium of cinema. For the most part, film has been used to tell a story, pretty much taking over the function of theatre but just as photography is an art and people go to photography exhibits why aren't there more exhibits of cinematography, films like this one and the work of Godfrey Reggio, Ron Fricke, and even films like Fantasia? Of course I know the reason is that it's all about the money and most people would rather see car chases and things getting blown up than art.
