200pp Illustrated. In original publisher's shrinkwrap. Text in Latvian and English. Photographs, posters, publicity materials. "The historical materials published here demonstrate that there was a deep and stable interest in Latvia about the country's emerging film art. ---- Already the first films create the screen version of the national mythology; a specific national melodrama genre is created that is continued both at the end of the 1920s and 1930s, as well as after the renewal of independent statehood." "Veicot pamatigu izpetes darbu, informacija tika apkopota vienuviet, pievienojot ari maksimali daudz ilustraciju (fotografijas, filmu plakati, reklamas laikrakstos utt.), tadejadi radot pirmo un, visticamak, vienigo pieejamo prieksstatu par pirmajam Latvijas valsti uznemtajam kinolentem."
