pageThis digital facsimile edition of a Photoplay Magazine issue from 1918 is packed with articles, photos, reviews, film novelizations, and trade and commercial advertisements. Photoplay was the top fan film magazine of the silent era in the United States, and often relayed facts (and sometimes billious exaggeration) on films, actors and directors that were reported nowhere else.

This issue contains the articles “Photoplay Writing” by John Emerson and Anita Loos, “Mary Pickford, the Girl” by Delight Evans, “Putting It Together” by Helen Starr on film editors, plus articles on Alice Brady, Gladys Brockwell, Marguerite Clark, Marjorie Daw, Elsie Ferguson, Louise Huff, Doris Kenyon, Gladys Leslie, Alla Nazimova, Pauline Starke, Fay Tincher, Maurice Tourneur and others.

Cover portrait of Doris Kenyon by W. Haskell Coffin. Of additional interest is a fiction adaptation of Hearts of the World (1918) by Julian Johnson, a fiction adaptation of His Own Home Town (1918) by Laura Proctor, “The Eagle’s Eye” (fiction) by Courtney Ryley Cooper, “Questions and Answers” by The Answer Man, and the series of short cinema tidbits in “Plays and Players” and “The Shadow Stage.”

We examined the edition on a Macintosh OS X computer with a DVD/CD drive. The Javascript-controlled, web-browser dependent disc operated as intended with OS X browsers Safari, Camino and Firefox. The disc should function properly in Windows browsers.

The page scans are clear and free of moirés, especially in the largest views, and all body type in the magazine in readable in all three page view sizes.

We recommend this CD-R edition of a typical issue of Photoplay Magazine.
