Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Page 8 The Great Canadian Moving Picture Co. When the National Film Board combines Its talents with the Great Canadian Moving Picture Company and CBC-TV, you can ex- pect big things. And, that's what you get in the ninety-minute special Dreamland; A History of Canadian Movies which will be telecast on the network, Wednesday af p.m. Like many great things, the Canadian film industry started with The Kiss. That was the name of the short, but spectacular film that brought moving pictures to Canada. The Kiss was shown to a standing-room-only crowd in Ottawa's West End Park, on the afternoon of July 21, 1896, and films were on their way in Canada. Perhaps our film in- dustry wasn't as big, as flashy or as star-studded as our Hollywood counter- part. Still, it had its luminaries, and though they may not have been stars, they did twinkle In their own way. If Motlywood had its Clark Gable, we had our Nanook of the North. If the Americans had their Gone With The Wind, Canadians had their CPR promotional films. Script Producer Klrwan Cox has managed to come up with an amazing amount of old footage from those CPR films to full-length features like The Viking, a revolutionary undertaking, shot among the Icebergs of the North Atlantic. The tongue-in-cheek VALUABLE COUPON Bring this Valuable Coupon Into Rich's Nut Hut lot This Valuable Offer irgi Gisluws RICH'S NUT HUT VALUABLE COUPON script, written and delivered by Don Brittaln, takes viewers on a tour of one of Canada's most fascinating Industries. It is a trip into nostalgia, filled with humour and pathos, covering the years from 1895 to 1939. When films first burst upon the Canadian scene, businessmen all across the country jumped on the bandwagon. In Calgary a barbershop became the local theatre. In, Edmonton it was a drygoods store. In many locations the new theatre owner did not have the money for chairs, and he would borrow them from the undertaker down the road. It was a convenient arrangement, except for the times when a funeral was taking place. On those afternoons there was no movie scheduled. But. despite the many vagaries of business, the Canadian film Industry grew and expanded. It brought the very first hockey game to theatre- goers a short feature filmed at the Montreal Winter Carnival In 1903. It presented the first home movie a film which featured the children of Ernest Ouimet, one of the early Canadian film pioneers. It produced some of the first advertising films; a series of one-reelers shot for the CPR. Treated It also shot some of the first propaganda1 films, aimed at recruiting men for the First World War. Incidentally, it was these recruiting films that led to censorship in the fledgling Industry. Since the Americans were not yet in the war when the first films were shot, anti- American sentiment ran high, and led to an ar- bitrary chopping of any scenes that featured the American flag. In Dreamland: A History of Canadian Movies, viewers will be treated to footage covering each of these events. And, that's not all. For sheer drama there is the sad saga of Lit- tle Nell, in Back To God's Country, Not only does Nell run the gamut of emotions while being pursued by the lustful villain (disguised as a Mountie but she also takes part in Canada's first skin-flick, (It was completely un- intentional. It seems that Nell's skin-tight leotard became wrinkled during a bathing scene, and the actress was forced to dis- card it, and present the bare facts to a waiting world.) But, despite her highly- acclaimed performance, Nell was not the only stan- dout in Canadian films. No, indeed!
