The Story of Film: An Odyssey - Birth of the Cinema

As I am starting to work through Mark Cousins' The Story of Film: An Odyssey I wanted to be able to keep track of all the films cited for personal reference. Where available, YouTube links are provided. I've tried to catch each physically cited film (as there appear to be the occasional docu shots without any credits) and have decided to list them by date rather than inter-episode appearance. If you happen to be as anal-retentive as me and notice that I've missed anything, please leave a comment below. Thanks to Hentai Cop and MongooseCmr for the recent reviews inspiring me to watch.

Episode 1 // Episode 2 // Episode 3 // Episode 4 // Episode 5

Currently missing:
The Horse that Bolted (1907, dir. Charles Pathé)
