(B&W photographs) "That immigrant Jews had a profound impact on the growth of American cinema is well known and has been the subject of much scholarship. But America's first Jewish movie mogul, Siegmund Lubin of Philadelphia, has never been closely studied. Drawing upon contemporary accounts and interviews with Lubin's surviving family, friends, and employees, this work details the life and career of the once-famous 'Pop' Lubin. It also seeks to explore the complex personality of this early film pioneer and the impact he had on the initial development of the movies."
