This book is a rediscovery of a lost era in Asheville history, covering the films produced here between 1900 and 1929. There are 136 images, most of which I guarantee that you've never seen before.
Of the fifty-plus films made in and around the city during that period, only one survives -- "The Conquest of Canaan" (1921) starring Thomas Meighan and Doris Kenyon.
