The 1920s is a period in which the focus shifted more and more to feature movies instead of shorts. A period in which German Expressionism, Soviet Montage Editing, and Realism had a great impact on the development of movie aesthetics, which brought us (as some say) the highlights of silent movies. But it was of course last but not least also the decade of the birth of sound movies. Therefor the 1920s deserve their own poll.
