The Moving Picture Girls

by Laura Lee Hope

Ruth and Alice DeVere and their father struggle to make ends meet while Mr. DeVere seeks another theatrical engagement. A friend suggests that Mr. DeVere come work as an actor in the moving pictures, which Mr. DeVere considers vulgar -- it is only after the family is served an eviction notice that Mr. DeVere gives in and accepts work in the 'movies'. The family's financial situation improves, and in time, Alice and Ruth win positions with the film company, too.  The girls have several thrilling adventures and help prevent thieves from stealing a friends new invention.
