When writing about film, be sure you have the director, the actors, and the characters down pat.  You should also know when it was released and which film company did the releasing. All this information can be found on the Internet Movie DataBase, or on the DVD case housing the film. There are more links on my del.icio.us website, and a fabulous youtube playlist "Early Comedy of the Silver Screen," which includes many clips and full-length films from the 1920s.
