"The cinema is truth 24 times a second."

There is a constant interchange of ideas between TV and film — hit movies getting Spin-Off series, popular TV series getting big-screen outings — so many tropes have entered TV from film, and vice versa.

Silent film established most of the basic Camera Tricks, and is the home to many a Discredited Trope and Dead Horse Trope, but at the same time many a Trope Maker or Trope Codifier.
