THE INVENTOR AND THE TYCOON: A Gilded Age Murder and the Birth of Moving Pictures

In the late 19th century, Eadweard Muybridge invented stop-motion photography. The artist and inventor was also a murderer who killed coolly and meticulously. His patron Leland Stanford was a railroad tycoon who hired him to unlock the secrets of motion through photography. A tale from the great American West, this popular history unspools a story of passion, wealth, and sinister ingenuity.
