 Spinal Tap Fan Site: The Treachery of Images: A History of the Mockumentary, Part 2
The fakery in the early films was, according to Barnouw, there to provide excitement and authenticity; staged scenes were included to illustrate the actions depicted in the actuality footage and to enhance their credibility.
While numerous turn-of-the-century actuality films of wars and natural disasters were partially faked in order to make them seem more real, mock documentaries are made to look as real as possible in part to fake out the audience, and in part to challenge them to question what they see.
Furthermore, these films often have as one of their specific goals the satire of the documentary form, a goal which, though present in any number of traditional documentaries, is by no means a hallmark of the form.

century, this filmography lists all films of which we are aware and have been able to verify the use of baseball in some form—language, artifact, symbol, image, incident, reference—that has meaning to a film’s plot or character development.
The film industry has evolved from screening only short films because of the constraints of the technology to altering length for use as part of a double feature.
Further, while some independent films have found their way into the filmography, there are probably many independent films with baseball content that are not included.

 Castonguay: Spanish-American War in United States Media Culture
Judging from the work of leading film historians, it would be difficult to overestimate the importance of the Spanish-American War to a fledgling American film industry in the wake of cinema's putative novelty year.
Given the central importance of the Spanish-American War to the early film industry, it is surprising that the burgeoning field of early cinema studies has not yet examined the ideological implications of the cinema's role in the war's cultural production.
Similar to earlier film studies scholarship concerned with The Birth of a Nation, then, new film historical treatments of the Spanish-American War have not yet explored in detail the cultural and ideological functions the film medium served during the war for Cuba.
