Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hal Mohr, A.S.C. (August 2, 1894, San Francisco - May 10, 1974 in Santa Monica, California) was a famed movie cinematographer. He is one of only six cinematographers to have a "Star" on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame, the others being J. Peverell Marley, Ray Rennahan, Leon Shamroy, Haskell Wexler, and Conrad L. Hall. His wife Evelyn Venable also has a "Star." In 1915, in an early example of an exploitation film peddled directly to theater owners, Mohr and Sol Lesser produced and directed a film The Last Night of the Barbary Coast. This film purported to show the last night of the depraved Barbary Coast red-light district of San Francisco before it was shut down by the police. (The area wasn't actually closed down until 1917.) This is now considered a lost film.
