9781456441852: The Cinema Murder: Made into the First Blockbuster Movie (Timeless Classic Books)

The Cinema Murder is a mystery novel written in 1917 by E. Phillips Oppenheim. Two years later, the book was made into a blockbuster movie by Paramount Studios. Critics of the time, especially those of Variety Magazine, 14 Jan 1920, mentioned that this particular movie, which opened at the Rialto, was so packed that at 10:00 PM the movie house owner had to turn people away after an entire day when people had been lined up around the block just to try to get in. They really felt that the director, George D. Baker, had done a wonderful job with the adaptation. The book remains a classic that is still enjoyed by readers around the world.
