1909 - By the time he was only 2 years old, the New York Times published the first movie review. It was a report on D.W. Griffith's movie "Pippa Passes" also called "The Song of Conscience", a silent film. The review said that this work was moving away from "lurid material that attracted the wrath of censors and concerned citizens and toward more respectable ends.

Rates rose to 7% for incomes over half a million dollars. Less than 1% of the population was subject to income tax.
