From Professor Kinema's Archives comes this 1922 issue of Picture Show. Page 9's In the Early Days of Pictures provides interesting reading: "Today the production of a single picture is a costly item requiring an army of carpenters, scene painters, electricians, and others, who are frequently at work at the studios day and night." And in Ask the Picture Show on page 23, a reader writes in to complain about "vocals introduced into the programme of a picture theatre he recently visited."
