Purely from a historical perspective, these vintage films from the American Film Archives are certainly worth a view.

Though some of these moving pictures are quite grainy and, at times, the images are badly-focused, for the most part, they do hold some entertainment value, as well.

Ranging in running times from 15 seconds to 90 minutes, this 3-disc, DVD set contains 50 films in all (from the years between 1894 to 1931).
