Moving Picture Girls Series

Ruth and Alice DeVere and their father struggle to make ends meet while Mr. DeVere seeks another theatrical engagement. A friend's suggestion that Mr. DeVere work as an actor in the moving pictures is considered vulgar -- but when the family is served an eviction notice Mr. DeVere accepts work in the 'movies'. The family's financial situation improves, and in time, Alice and Ruth win positions with the film company, too -- and begin to have thrilling adventures!
