"The cinema is truth 24 times a second."
Jean-Luc Godard

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. See also Short Film.
