The Moving Picture World was an influential early trade journal for the American film industry, from 1907 to 1927.[1] An industry powerhouse at its height, Moving Picture World frequently reiterated its independence from the film studios.

In 1911, the magazine bought out Views and Film Index. Its reviews illustrate the standards and tastes of film in its infancy, and shed light on story content in those early days. By 1914, it had a reported circulation of approximately 15,000.[2]

The publication was founded by James Petrie (J.P.) Chalmers, Jr. (1866–1912), who began publishing in March 1907 as The Moving Picture World and View Photographer.[1][3][4]

In December 1927, it was announced that the publication was merging with the Exhibitor's Herald, when it was reported the combined circulation of the papers would be 16,881.[5] In 1931, a subsequent merger with the Motion Picture News occurred, creating the Motion Picture Herald.[6][7]

A Spanish language version of the magazine, entitled Cine-Mundial, was published from 1916 to 1948.[8]

Two indexes have been published to assist in locating information in this valuable journal: An Index to Short and Feature Film Reviews in the Moving Picture World: The Early Years, 1907–1915[9] and Filmmakers in The Moving Picture World: An Index of Articles, 1907–1927.[10]
