During his first year at Vitagraph, Maurice changes movies forever from the actor’s standpoint. He refuses to build sets, thereby creating the job description of screen actor. He normalizes his fellow actors’ movements to create the “slow motion” method, thus formulating the first natural acting techniques for screen players. In becoming the first screen heartthrob, he achieves a level of popularity as yet unseen by any actor.

Keywords:   Changed movies, Slow motion method, natural acting, first screen heartthrob
