In this circa 1940 photograph, Ray Culley is shown riding down a road on the hood of a car with his camera and tripod. Ray's father mortgaged the family home in Norwalk, Ohio, in 1939 so he could loan Ray the $1,500 he needed to buy that equipment and start his film production company. In 2023 dollars, the value of that loan today would be about $30,000. | Source: Hagley Museum and Library, Cinecraft Productions Collection.
