After the onset of World War I, Hollywood begins turning out movies such as Intolerance and Civilization to help promote peace. However, after the U.S. gets involved in the war, stars such as Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford, and Charlie Chaplin help the effort by selling war bonds. Propaganda films come into play. Eventually, the public grew tired of movies about the war. Most of the definitive WWI films weren't made until several years after the war had ended (The Big Parade, What Price Glory, Wings and All Quiet on the Western Front).
