About this product
- DescriptionBlair Miller tells the story of the motion picture industry as it developed in Jacksonville after the turn of the twentieth century. Almost Hollywood reveals the meteoric rise of Jacksonville in early silent films. Home to over thirty studios employing actors, directors, and stagehands, Jacksonville became touted as the winter film capital of the world by 1915. A myriad of factors contributed to Jacksonville's rise and then fall by the mid 1920s. What were the reasons why Jacksonville missed out as the next mecca for filmmaking? Blair Miller tells the story through primary sources from that remarkable period.
- Author BiographyBlair Miller has had a lifelong interest in silent film comedies. His previous book, American Silent Film Comedies: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of Persons, Studios and Terminology (1995), is considered a reference in the field. He currently lives in Rochester, New York.
