September 23, 2011

100 years ago today, residents of Bisbee, Arizona could head on over to the Orpheum, where they  could see a mix of vaudeville and movies, the latter category including four relatively recent films, three of which were produced by French companies. The Blind Princess and the Poet, was directed by the illustrious American D. W. Griffith, and starring Blanche Sweet; The other three provided a variety of drama (His Terrible Lesson), comedy ( Max’s Divorce Suit), and documentary fare (Elephant Hunting).
