The Motion Picture Herald was an American film industry trade paper published from 1931 to December 1972.[1][2][3] It was replaced by the QP Herald, which only lasted until May 1973.[4]

The paper was founded in 1915 by a Chicago printing company as a regional trade paper for exhibitors in the Midwest. In 1917, editor Martin Quigley bought the paper and over the following decades developed the Exhibitors Herald into an important national trade paper for the film industry.[5] In 1917, Quigley acquired and merged MOTOGRAPHY.[5] In 1927, he acquired and merged The Moving Picture World and began publishing as Exhibitors' Herald and Moving Picture World, which was later shortened to the more manageable title, Exhibitors' Herald World. After acquiring Motion Picture News in 1930, he merged these publications into the Motion Picture Herald.[6][7][8]
