The Birth of a Genre: The Italian (Thomas H. Ince, 1915) | the Gonzo Trap |

In one of the first major books written about the history of cinema, History of the Film by Maurice Bardeche and Robert Brasillach (first published in French in 1935) there are just two pages dedicated to Thomas H Ince. Ince is a name now mainly remembered within a small circle of Silent Film Cinephiles and Film Academics, yet he is a seminal figure.
