Capellani started directing almost immediately. His wife, his children, and his brother Paul soon joined him. Among the important films he directed at the time were a modern adaptation of Camille (1915) with Clara Kimball Young and his brother Paul, and La Vie de Bohème (1916) with Alice Brady. Within the World Film Corporation, there were disagreements between the president, William A. Brady, and the vice-president, Lewis J. Selznick. Selznick left the company with its main asset, the star Clara Kimball Young. Capellani followed them in the new company that was formed in July 1916
