Need help with Title ID, for early Hollywood silent film clips

I have a bunch of early Hollywood silent film clips that I am trying to source as part of a research project. Any idea of the titles of the films these clips are from? Thank you in advance!

#20 is two clips that don't come from the same movie--first is Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable in the sound film "It Happened One Night" (hitchhiking scene here), but the vehicle right after that is not the same shot (or vehicle) from It Happened One Night. I unfortunately don't recognize that last shot.

Couple of links are flubbed:
Link for #13 goes to the same link as for #12-- it matches the linktext for #12.

Likewise the link for #19 goes to the same link as #17&18.

I'll flag my comment for mod attention, and then mods can delete this upon link repair. kthx.

I am pretty sure #15 is Buster Keaton. I thought it was "One Week" but it doesn't seem to be.
And yep, theatro is right about #20.

As mentioned above the links seem have some errors in them. Here are correctly links:
