The Moving Picture Girls

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
4 Hrs. 35 Min.


Ruth and Alice DeVere and their father Hosmer struggle to make ends meet in New York City times are hard, even for a talented actor like Mr. DeVere. Just as he successfully auditions for a new play, an old voice affliction renders him terribly hoarse and he loses the role. Despite voice rest and medical treatment, Mr. DeVere's voice fails to improve, and it is impossible to find theatre work.

A friend and neighbour in their apartment building suggests that Mr. DeVere tries acting in the moving pictures (which being silent, would not need him to speak at all) but Mr. DeVere considers that business to be common and cheap. However, when they receive an eviction notice, and local shops refuse to extend credit, Mr. DeVere may have no choice and where he goes, his daughters will follow.
