Revenue or profit over time is misleading even with inflation adjustments. A $0.15 ticket to see a movie in 1920 is equivalent to $2.23 in 2022.

In 2022 numbers a 1920 film would have sold 6,666,667 tickets to reach $1M and a film in 2022 would need to sell only 90,909 tickets at $11 each (ticket price average www.indiewire.com) to reach $1M.

Do a chart based on tickets sold in order to show a film’s true popularity with the public.

… And don’t use white text on light grey.
