In 1973 Westworld
was the first major movie to use CGI. That's the one where Yul Brynner plays a robot cowboy.
Also the period between 1993 and 2004 is missing. All in all it's quite a hodgepodge of clips from actual movies and "behind the scenes" features. I guess they just used whatever footage they could get their hands on. E.g. the Star Wars exploding Death Star scene is obviously from the Special Edition re-release and most certainly does not represent 1977 special effects...
