Hey, i was going to look into this when i saw you'd already completed the merge Face-grin.svg Seems fine to me, so i'm removing the help tag. Also I trust you've already read WP:MERGE, so there's really not much help i can give. Just as long as it's sorted — benzband (talk) 12:14, 24 February 2012 (UTC)

New - The Story of Film: An Odyssey (table)[edit]

Created New Related Article To Contain A Sortable Table Of Film Clips Shown In The Story of Film: An Odyssey 15-Episode Film About The History Of Film. This Newly Created Article Seems Reasonable Since The Table May Grow Too Large To Include In The Main article - In Any Case - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 21:12, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

This makes sense. I was wondering if you knew any easy ways of adding the film clips to the table? I was trying earlier but couldn't find an easy method! Presuki (talk) 17:52, 13 June 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for your comment - no, I don't know any easy way of adding film clips to the Table at the moment - if I find one, I'll note the way here of course - in any case - Thanks again for your comment - and - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 19:36, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

AKA and introduced in an eariler episode[edit]

I noticed that some of the list of episode's film clips mention when a clip was introduced in an earlier episode and also sometimes gives alternative names for some films. I didn't do this when I added the film clips shown in episodes 8, 9, 14 & 15. I will go back over them if I get a chance and add them in, or if anyone else wants to, that'd be great too!

Sounds Good - Guess I Started Doing This Some Time Ago - May Be A Bit Challenging To Do But The Newly Added Information May Be Helpful and/or Useful I Would Think - Enjoy! :) Drbogdan (talk) 19:47, 13 June 2012 (UTC)

How is the each chapter organized? Overall organization?[edit]

Is there a particular theme in each chapter? I see that each Chapter has a title, but there is no synopsis. Does anyone know what the point being made in each chapter is? And maybe share it with us. For example Chapter 2 is: The triumph of American Film. So, is the point that American films were better than others and then sets out to show how and why by using a compare and contrast method? Anyway, I'm thinking of getting the series and would like to know if it is just a bunch of clips from old movies (in which case I would not be interested).

Each hour is dedicated to celebrating and calling attention to notable films from particular eras and regions. The Triumph of American Film is celebrating booming creative success in early American film, for example, and Movies to Change the World is about protest film from around the world (mostly outside America, I believe). It's not really trying to make an argument besides "these films are great/notable." (talk) 08:21, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
