The 1920s were an innovative decade in which both "talkies" and color films made their first appearance. Film became so popular that the first real stars arose in the persons of Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford. A lot of European stars were imported during the 20s, such as Fritz Lang and Greta Garbo. That was not all Europe had to offer as German Expressionism became an influential artistic movement. The most popular genres were swashbucklers, historical extravaganzas and melodramas. The greatest output of films was actually in the 1920s and 1930s, which was made possible by the studios' factory-like production system.
