Treasures III: Social Issues in American Film, 1900-1934 is the first DVD set to explore the social activism of movies during their first decades. Arranged on four discs by theme — “The City Reformed,” “New Women,” “Toil and Tyranny,” and “Americans in the Making” — the 12-1/4 hour set traces the interplay of movies and social reform during the formative years of America’s first mass medium, when virtually no issue was too controversial for the big screen.
