This competently compiled collection of clips from the 1920s gives pretty much the Standard Movie History of the 1920s. It begins with the end of the First World War and Wilson in office; and it ends with a collection of show business clips.

There are some interesting clips, including one of FDR in 1920. Art Gilmore's narration is brisk and only slightly over-enthusiastic, which was standard for him when he narrated Warner Brothers short subjects. This short subject plays on Turner Classic Movies before showing showing movies starring people who show up in the clips, like George Arliss in the stage production of THE GREEN GODDESS or biopics about those actors, like Marilyn Miller in Ziegfeld's production of SUNNY. Editor De Leon Anthony chose them well. The result is a typical program filler.
