On the reverse a previous owner wrote "JOHN RICHARD MOORE 1925-2009 University High Arts Co Founder Panavision Co.". This early work would date to the artist's teens.

Moore, born in Illinois, was in Los Angeles by the late 1930's. He attended the University of Southern California. In later life he wanted to utilize the advanced filming technologies he had developed, so he returned to the cinematography arts.
