"The 'prize winner' of the title of course was just a goat who had pulled down for its owner a ten-dollar bill as a prize at the county fair, a sum which its owner promptly had sunk in the nearest bucolic palace of chance. The committee disregarded any possessive tendencies of its own in the goat line and decided the entrant really did know his onions when it came to making pictures. But of course every one even on the fringe of the amateur world knows J. Kinney Moore is one of the tops among the amateurs." American Cinematographer, Jan. 1938, 28.
Shot using a Cine Kodak Special camera, and Eastman S.S. Pan film (American Cinematographer, Jan. 1938, 27).
