The Magic Mirror is a study of the ten years of native Russian film production through the Revolution of 1917, based almost exclusively on Russian-language primary sources. Showing how these films portrayed and appealed to a new urban middle class, Youngblood examines the organization and evolution of the industry and looks at genres, motifs, and themes in sixty-five of the most important surviving films.
