"Arthur R. Powell of Asuza, California, decided to photograph the silkworm from the egg to its full growth. For some of us who are of a nervous temperament this may seem a tedious task to set for oneself, but Powell started it and determined to see it through to the bitter end." American Cinematographer, Oct. 1932, 28.
Discussed in "Keeping Up with the Amateur" (American Cinematographer, Oct. 1932, 28, 37), which describes how Powell used a reading glass to magnify the silkworms in the film.
American Cinematographer (May 1933, 29) reported that, following its Certificate of Merit in 1932, this film was popular "with many educational organizations in California and throughout the United States."
