Movies really started making an impact in the 1910s, with audiences demanding more complicated plots and more information on the stars. This led to the rise of the great studios and the construction of many movie theaters. It was also a decade of innovation, with both the technology and the medium itself. D.W. Griffith's epic Birth of a Nation in particular helped film-making make a giant leap forward. The most popular genres were westerns, melodramas and slapstick comedies.
