Inside the Hollywood Fan Magazine

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter describes the fan magazine Photoplay and its editor James R. Quirk. Photoplay, first published in August 1911, is the most famous of all fan magazines. It began in the pioneering days of the motion picture and lasted through the demise of the star system, the rise of independent filmmaking, and into an era when the public got its entertainment news from the pages of People and similar magazines. Quirk helped establish Photoplay’s prominence with a reliable table of contents, good writing (by fan magazine standards), and improved circulation.
