The Moving Picture Boys Series
By Victor Appleton




Moving pictures and photo plays are famous the world over, and in this line of books the reader is given a full description of how the films are made -- the scenes of little dramas, indoors and out, trick pictures to satisfy the curious, soul-stirring pictures of city affairs, life in the Wild West, among the cowboys and Indians, thrilling rescues along the seacoast, the daring of picture hunters in the jungle among savage beasts, and the great risks run in picturing conditions in a land of earthquakes. The volumes teem with adventures and will be found
 interesting from first chapter to last." -- Grosset and Dunlap advertisement
