Forget movies that are a mere five reels long, how about three hundred!? In the United States during the "nickelodeon era" of film history, movies got longer in more ways than the ones we have been covering recently. Some became the first film series with continuing stories! We cover that transition and its greatest star in today's episode!
Make sure to visit the website, historyoffilmpodcast.com, for this weeks episode–there is some information there that is important but didn't make it into the show for various reasons. This includes the very literal origins of the word "cliff-hanger" and examples of some of the movies we talked about in this episode.
