Summary
For more than thirty years, William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody entertained audiences across the United States and Europe with his Wild West show. Scores of books have been written about Cody's fabled career as a showman, but his involvement in the film industry - following the dissolution of his traveling show - is less well known. In this book, Sandra K. Sagala chronicles the fascinating story of Cody's venture into filmmaking during the early cinema period. In 1894 Thomas Edison invited Cody to bring some of the Wild West performers to the inventor's kinetoscope studio. From then on, as Sagala reveals, Cody was frequently in the camera's eye, eager to participate in the newest and most popular phenomenon of the era: the motion picture. In 1910, promoter Pliny Craft produced 'The Life of Buffalo Bill', a film in which Cody played his own persona
