This fascinating picture shows an early film director shouting instructions to his actors with a megaphone, something perfectly possible during the Silent Era when no sounds were recorded. His cameraman carefully swivels the camera on its tripod, training the lens on the ultimately silent histrionics. The well-observed light reflector is a realistic touch, along with the theatrical two-dimensional set and the iconic director’s chair.
