If you are looking for early films, the Thanhouser Company (Vitagraph and  
Edison competitor) made a half dozen films (dramas and comedies) with Eugenics  
in the title, between 1909-1918.  You can get complete original desciptions  
and reviews from the trade journals of these films on Q. David Bowers' CD-ROM,  
Thanhouser Films: An Encyclopedia and History. You can find it at Ned  
Thanhouser's website    _www.thanhouser.org_ (http://www.thanhouser.org) 
 
Its an amazing resource for early American film.
