Classic Hollywood: Motion pictures in still photos

LA Times – “Over the last 41 years, film historian and author Marc Wanamaker has acquired some 200,000 photographs chronicling the history of film production in North America from 1909 until the present day. Many of these photographs are one of a kind. Last month, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences received more than 70,000 of these photographs from Wanamaker’s Bison Archives, which was named after the old Bison Film Company. “It is one of my favorite companies because they made films about Sioux Indians from a Sioux point of view in 1909,” Wanamaker said.”
