1917-1960: Early Animators

Note: Film lengths in this section are not accurate for a number of reasons:

  • current copies of films may be missing frames/footage.
  • silent films had varying recording/projecting speeds. It is unclear whether or not the lengths given in current sources are taken from playing the film at 24 fps or at 16-23 fps depending on the intended projection speed of the film
  • some lengthsmay be estimates or rounded up/down
  • because of the unreliability of film lengths, the number of reels is also cited when it is known.
  • when more information becomes available, the lengths section will be altered to give additional context to the question of individual film lengths. ie. film reel(s) length in meters.
