From the Paper:

"During this approximated 30 year period a clear rise and fall can be dissected and studied to the extent of a full understanding of its era. The emerging progression of the industry began in the early 1890's but began full launch around 1905 when full hour-length movies were presented to a growing audience of interest.*(The Rise Of Hollywood, The Oxford Guide Film Studies) The new technology of movie making developed the industry during this early period but was brought to a halt progression upon the introduction of sound. Technology was essentially the beginnings of movie making in its entirety, but throughout the industry over its entire history, technology has played the most influential part in the progression and innovations of film success. The success of a 1927's film that was the first feature-length sound movie increased to the then midsized Warner Bros. studio. The following year brought forth even more success through further induction of sound into full-length sound inclusive films. "
