The critical reception of "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" in New York in 1921 was a significant occasion in the development of an American art cinema. The critical discourse and social status of the National Board of Review, economic changes in the film industry, and larger contradictions of Progressivism helped determine this historical moment.
