Alfred Cheney Johnston in Photoplay 1920    Aug 10, '09 9:59 PM
by David for group Historical Ziegfeld Group #142

As I have suggested in an earlier posting, Alfred Cheney Johnston became increasingly involved with motion picture publicity portraiture in 1919-1920. After doing promotion photography for Selznick Pictures and appearing regularly in Moving Picture World, ACJ became fashionable in the eyes of studio press agents and motion picture magazine editors. This fascination culminated in a series of exclusive portraits published in autumn of 1920 in Photoplay. His next move would be to go to Hollywood with director A. Dwan to work as artistic director of "A Perfect Crime."
