The First Hollywood Motion Picture

Around 1900 while Georges Méliès was experimenting with moving picture cameras in France, Thomas Edison was inventing cameras and projectors in the U.S. By 1908 Thomas Edison controlled most of the U.S. patents on moving picture cameras and projectors, and a fellow named Eastman Kodak was the only U.S. producer of the long reels of film that Edison's cameras used. The Thomas Edison licensing company in 1908 sued all movie makers who did not pay hefty royalties to Edison, and forced theaters to show only Thomas Edison movies or Biograph movies, which used a slightly different camera design to get around Edison's patents. In December of 1908 the half dozen or so movie companies that had been fighting Edison got together with him and Eastman Kodak to form an alliance, and the Motion Picture Patents Company was formed. The association as a group then fought all new filmmakers that wanted to produce moving pictures, and when lawsuits didn't stop them they hired gangs to break into theaters and destroy equipment and frighten the customers. As motion picture theaters were becoming more and more popular in cities and towns across the country the only movies allowed to be shown were those created by the Edison group of producers . . . until . . . In 1914 a handful of men including Cecil B. DeMille, Jesse L. Lasky, Oscar Apfel, Hal Roach and others decided that the only way they could create their own full length motion pictures would be to move as far away from New York City and Edison's neighborhood in New Jersey, and the Los Angeles area of Southern California seemed like it might be just far enough away. Many short moving picture scenes were filmed in Los Angeles area before this, but never a full length story of an hour or more. This is the first full length motion picture that was produced without the blessing of the official motion picture association, and it opened the door to the sleepy little area known as Hollywood to become the motion picture capital of the world. The interior scenes were filmed in an L shaped barn on the corner of Selma and Vine in a barn that is now the home of the Hollywood Heritage Museum across the street from the Hollywood Bowl entrance. Many of the exterior shots were filmed at Sunset and Vine where a Chase Bank building sits today. In addition to being the first full length movie filmed in Hollywood, it is the first movie for legendary producer Cecil B. DeMille. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
