About the Book
First published on March 9, 1907, The Moving Picture World was the first trade paper of the film industry. It continued until December 31, 1927.
This index directs researchers to the appropriate pages of the magazine for biographical and career data on the early “filmmakers”—i.e., anyone involved in making a film: actors and actresses, producers, directors, camera grinders, writers, editors, company presidents, technical directors, stunt extras, and many others. Each entry includes professional position or job slot, real name (if applicable), any relatives in cinema, article citations, the date and page location of the citations, and a notice of illustrations within the article.
