9780899506500: Books and Plays in Films, 1896-1915: Literary, Theatrical and Artistic Sources of the First Twenty Years of Motion Pictures

The early years of cinematographic productions have scarcely been touched in modern research publications. Among the thousands of films produced during, the cinema's first 20 years were many adaptations from other media: the stage, music hall literature and popular publications. This book lists over 3000 films from some 2000 literary, artistic and other media sources for the period 1896 to 1915. It is arranged alphabetically by name of original author, with titles of films, plus date and studio, arranged chronologically.
