The most significant years in the development of moving pictures in the U.S. were those between 1891 and 1920, by which time the cinematographic industry had attained a definite shape and form. The early years belonged to Edison Company, until other entrepreneurs, namely the American Mutoscope and Biograph Company and the American Vitagraph Company arrived.
