about

This early work by Arthur Benjamin Reeve was originally published in 1921 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'The Film Mystery' features Professor Craig Kennedy who is sometimes compared to as “The American Sherlock Holmes” due to his astounding ability at crime solving and his Watson-like sidekick Walter Jameson. 'The Film Mystery' reveals the sudden death of Stella Lamar whilst she is acting before the camera. This becomes a thoroughly tangled mystery finally solved by Craig Kennedy and is an interesting reflection of the film industry and all its colourful characters. Arthur Benjamin Reeve was born on 15th October 1880 in New York, USA. Reeve received his University education at Princeton and upon graduating enrolled at the New York Law School. However, his career was not destined to be in the field of Law. Between 1910 and 1918 he produced 82 short stories for Cosmopolitan. 'The Exploits of Elaine' was Reeves first screenplay, and by the end of the decade, his film career was at its peak with his name appearing on seven films, most of them serials and three of them starring Harry Houdini. Reeves died on 9th August 1936, a few years after moving to Trenton.
