Larry Gormley's 'The History of Film' graphic charts the development of the major motion picture industry from 1910 to the present. While the layout is expansive, covering vast on-screen territory, it is also notably succinct.

Gormley documents over 2000 movies in The History of Film. Although the list is extensive with reference to multiple directors and celebrities, it is quite selective. The designer chose to include only the most significant productions.

The titles are further ordered under 20 genre subheads. The 100 year long look at the business is comprehensive to say the least, and this effort in categorization adds a sense of clarity to the big screen releases. Cinema buffs will definitely receive their fill of critical film making data.
