About

Delve with us into the fascinating intersection of early cinema, advertising, and American culture through the lens of silent movies. Learn how Chicago candy businesses like Cracker Jack—which introduced its tasty popcorn product at the 1893 World’s Fair—sought to capitalize on the burgeoning film industry. You'll also hear about darker aspects of the company's history, including child labor issues.
