In the summer of 1920 PHOTOPLAY MAGAZINE ran this glossary of movie terms with cartoons by Ralph Barton and doggerel verse by Howard Dietz.

With new technology came new terms that seemed odd to the ear (it should be remembered that this new technology did not involve the use of one's ear at all); words to be added to the nation's vocabulary were "fade-out", "shooting", "box-office" and "location":

"To "shoot" a scene is nothing new-
Directors should be shot at, too"
