"A Story of Our Hero" is a modern narrative of a man returning home after an extended absence, told via a history of cinema. The action all takes place in a single day, but the filmmaking (styles and techniques) travels from the beginning of movie history to the present day. This 8-minute short film takes us "to 1910" as stated in the title.
More classic silent films added daily starring Charles "Charlie" Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Mary Pickford, Mabel Normand, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, Harold Lloyd, sisters Lillian and Dorothy Gish, Oliver "Babe" Hardy, Stan Laurel, the Keystone Cops / Kops, Ford Sterling, Blanche Sweet, Max Linder, and directed by Georges Méliès, brothers Louis and Auguste Lumière, Alice Guy-Blaché, Lois Weber, D.W. Griffith, Mack Sennett, William K.L. Dickson, Edwin S. Porter, Thomas Edison, George Albert Smith, Ferdinand Zecca, Segundo de Chomón, Louis Feuillade, J. Stuart Blackton, Edwin Thanhouser, and Winsor McCay. We hope you enjoy these movies and cartoons from early cinema, some with new musical scores!
