Her Mother’s Fiancee (Bermuda Yankee)

March 31, 2011


MOVING PICTURE NEWS (25 March 1911): 23.

Why did Yankee feel the need to promote these two films as “Bermuda Yankees?” Sure, lots of 1911 films promised views of exotic locales, but most of them were either travel films or ethnographic documentaries, or narratives explicitly set in those locales. But Her Mother’s Fiancee? Sounds pretty generically American to me.
