I was out of the country for Saint Patty's Day, but I want to post some information here about a film Tom Meyers of the Fort Lee Film Commission celebrated on St. Patrick's Day: The three-reeler Brennan of the Moor, produced by Alice Guy for Solax and directed by Edward Warren.
Did you know the movie term “cliffhanger” originated in Fort Lee? It came from Pearl White dangling off a cliff in the Perils of Pauline series. Those scenes were filmed in what is now called “Cliffhanger Point.” On Marth 7th & 8th and you can watch the Perils of Pauline and see the original Cliffhanger Point itself in an event organized by the Fort Lee Film Commission to honor
Pearl White’s 126th birthday. Film fans in the NY area, don’t miss this! Read more »
The Daughter of the Dawn (1920) is one of the earliest motion pictures filmed within Oklahoma. It's also one of the few surviving films we have that features an entire cast of Native American actors and actresses, including a son and daughter of Quanah Parker. (Alice Guy made a couple of one-reelers with Native American actors, but they don't survive.)
