  1. It’s fascinating to see what film-making was like when the restrictions were more of a technical nature than from focus group testings and uptight parents. Even though the early era is primitive by today’s standards, there’s certainly a more pervasive sense of wonder and imagination. TV commercials are more sophisticated today than most early films in a lot of ways, but there’s something to be said for seeing those seeds being planted and being able trace your favorite movies back to their ancestors.
