Sorry Sandy but I don't know exactly what titles were in "Great Primitive"
MOVIES BEGIN has over 100 titles ranging from the early motion studies &
Lumiere through Edison, Melies , Porter etc up to early Griffith short
features. My guess is that it does include many of the same things but
probably not all of them. In my humble opinion it is probably Kino's best
and most important release in terms of film history. There should be info on
our web site at www.kino.com but I don't know if every individual title
included in each tape/dvd is listed.
