Lessons from the success of "It"

"The marketing was smart...they did a good job of using a "less is more" approach" - Jakey

 "This is a rare case of a movie that was perfect to remake: has a strong nostalgic following but which also kind of sucks and has a lot of room for improvement. You get the pre-installed fan base but don't have the pressure of re-creating and improving on a legit classic." - MJS

Because I have seen very few feature length films before 1920, this will just be a top ten for the decade. Yes, I'm anxious to see enough to get rid of The Birth of a Nation which is horrifically racist -- but, alas, was also hugely influential in terms of the history of cinema and at least when I was hitting college was still always taught in film classes. Unfortunately most films from this era are lost forever. 

1910-1919
alphabetically
The Birth of a Nation (1915, DW Griffith)
Intolerance (1916, DW Griffith)
Les Vampires (1915, Louis Feuillade) 
Male and Female (1919, Cecil B DeMille)
Stella Maris (1918, Marshall Neilan) 

any suggestions?
