They say that parallel development would produce pretty much the same results in any human endeavour, but these three are essentially the nascent motion picture business's practical thinkers, able to transfer to the screen each one's own vision - and in as influential a way a possible.

Sadly, we still watch what are basically the visions of these same three, and a precious few others from that period, over and over in slightly modified forms and plots, which only shows how frighteningly certain they were.
