Description

The first movie magazines were vehicles of the cartel, including the early in-house publication The Edison Kinetogram and the first fan magazine, Motion Picture Story. As the title implied, the focus was on the stories, but before long circulation of the most popular titles was increased when articles featuring the actors appeared. The most important and long- standing fan magazine, Photoplay, began a few months later.
