Abstract [en]

This essay reappraises the discourse on and conceptualization of screen bodies, primarily in newsprint, prior to screen credits and ideas of stardom. The essay takes off from Richard deCordova's research in Picture Personalities and a series of texts on location shooting reprinted in the first volume of Moving Picture World (1907). It leads up to a portrait of John P. Wade as the first moving picture hero
