From the beginning when silent motion pictures were discovered in the late eighteen hundreds new discoveries were already on the horizon in terms of new technology for movies. It was during thie time period of the late eighteen hundreds until around nineteen twenty seven when silent films were the it thing. However nineteen twenty seven brought in a new era, one that included sound accompanying what was then just a silent motion picture. Before the introduction and idea of adding sound to movies came about, were nonetheless a form of worldwide entertainment that generated huge amounts of cash and were quite popular. Silent films were popular because they did not just entertain but watching these types of films got people’s minds off of the world issues and hard realities of life, such issues included the war. Along with the invention of sound combined with motion pictures came the first movie onto the scene, becoming a part of history. The first “talkie” to come along was called the Jazz Singer. Before this the only common silent films were those done by Charlie Chaplin as well as movies like The Big Parade and Flesh and the Devil. Movies were changed forever afterwards.
