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.)
Last month I was in London for a conference and I was able to visit the Sherlock Holmes Museum at 221b Baker Street. It's very hard, when you visit this lovely little museum, to remember that Sherlock Holmes is a fictional character. The study is ready for his return, evidence from various cases are strewn about. The upper rooms have wax figures depicting scenes from various stories. It's definitely a must-see for Holmes fans.
And here is another must-see: The Cinémathèque Française has recently found a long-lost Sherlock Holmes film made in 1916 by Essanay Studios, starring the great actor William Gillette.
A blogger who identifies themselves only as PW1949 has been posted very erudite and carefully researched blogs on everything to do with the 19th Arrondissement in Paris. This includes the Buttes Chaumont area where the Gaumont Studios were.
If you can read French, I highly recommend visiting this blog. Even if you can't, the pictures and maps are great.
Why write about Buster Keaton in a blog dedicated to early cinema and Alice Guy? Because Herbert Blaché, Alice's husband, directed a few films in Hollywood before the transition to sound, and one of them was The Saphead, the first feature film starring Buster Keaton.
