I am not employed by "The Movies Begin" people, but I second it as the one to buy. There are things on those disks you couldn't find elsewhere in the past, and an excellent collection of shorts by all those below. If yousupplement with extended collections of Griffith, Chaplain, etc., you end up with a termendous collection that's very easy to use to plan classes as well as teach them.

Subject: [SCREEN-L] early film title


	My department is slowly replacing films on VHS cassettes w/ those 
	on DVD.We're looking for suggestions for anthologies of early film 
	that would conveniently include the likes of the Lumieres, Edison, 
	Melies, Porter, etc. (I remember seeing a long time ago a
	wonderfully self-conscious Melies' short called, I think, "The Magic
	Box.")
	
	Any suggestions on or offline will be appreciated.

	Thanks,

	Jeff Evans
