Back in the early days of movies, silent films were immensely popular. For the first time in history, people could watch moving images rather than just still photo images. To make up for the lack of sound, a pianist or guitarist would occasionally be hired to provide accompanying music to go along with the action. Dialogue was provided using text that was inserted into the movie; the limitation of the screen size, however, usually meant that the text had to be short in length. A drawback was that this limited the amount of information the viewer could receive. Still, it was a start.
