Since the first motion picture studio in Texas was established in San Antonio in 1910, the city has been home to the filming of more than 250 movies, from silent flickers to thrillers to the winner of the first Academy Award.

California film historian Frank Thompson's entertainingly written and dramatically illustrated work documents this ongoing activity for the first time. It concludes with a landmark filmography that leaves no doubt about the richness of the filmmaking heritage that gives San Antonio claim to the title "Texas Hollywood."
