In a narrative punctuated with anecdotes and photographs, Hugh V. Jamieson, founder of the Jamieson Film Company, reflects on his involvement in the film industry. Highlights include Jamieson recalling his early years as an itinerant filmmaker, when he would develop film in hotel room bathtubs. He continues by demonstrating how he would lay out the wet film to dry on the bed. He also describes making his first aerial picture, of the Southern Methodist University Campus, hand cranking the camera as he sat on the wing of the plane. Jamieson speaks proudly of obtaining audio recording equipment in 1913, and thereby becoming the first industrial producer in the US to make sound films. He tells of several other accomplishments, including making the first sound film of a court proceeding and being the first person to release a film about Bonnie and Clyde.
