D.W. Griffith's Intolerance (1916) still staggers the mind with the Babylon set, which remained standing in Hollywood well into the 1920's. Audiences then had a hard time following the four cross cutting stories, from different time periods.
Even today it is a demanding task to watch, especially at the film's climax. Here is a snippet from the fall of Babylon sequence. Note the use of a vignetting iris and the masking to accentuate a portion of the frame.
