'This famous and much loved book brilliantly evokes the classic early period of film history from its crude beginnings to the golden years of the Twenties.  From the first flickering images of Edison's Kinetoscope to the mighty spectacle of Ben Hur and The Ten Commandments, the development of cinema is faithfully traced in more than 3,000 stills, many of them rare or unique, of the great films and the great stars.'
