Thill Behind The Movie Sets WITH BUDDY MASON highly, roles. gymnastic "dramatic" Hollywood, Calif. — "There's romance in them thai-' roarin' •ails!" Perhaps that line never ,ot into a script, but the truth it these words has been proved over, and over, again! Show a train sequence in the niddle of a draggy picture-and a nodding audience comes to ife. And. the wailing train whistle can take scant credit. That is, unless you count the few sound sleepers who missed the first, faint chugging in the distance. * * * Trains have roared through mountains of celluloid and over countless reams of "Script- Mimeo-Bond" since Edwin S. Porter filmed "The Great Train Robbery." The first open-air epic to tell a complete story, this twelve-minute "feature" • made movie history. It. completed a round trip of the nation's makeshift box-offices of that day and returned loaded high with receipts qarnered by moviedom's first smash hit! For over 50 years, movie trains have reloaded over the same route. * * * D. W. Griffith was quick to note the public interest in train stories. He promptly filmed "The Lonedale Operator," with Blanche Sweet, and reaped an avalanche of coins. Alice Joyce next became "The Engineer's Sweetheart" with satisfying "results. Just prior to World War I, a whole series of railway thrillers titled "The Hazards of Helen'! took to the movie rails. Helen Holmes stunted through a profitable train-leaping career until Helen Gibson fell heir to these ' C. W. Schilchting As shooting techniques improved, director John Ford jockeyed "The Iron Horse" across the continent, only stopping to permit. George O'Brien to load on a record box-office harvest. Buster Keaton's "The General" and Lon Chancy's "Thunder" c h a r g e d down the rails to finish in the money and clear .all tracks for the later runs of "Union Pacific." "The Atchison-Topeka and Sante Fe". "The Harvey Girls" and an , impressive array of engines frorrt litlte wood-burners to modern streamliners. * * * "The Great Lbc&molive Chase" is a fit candidate for a niche in the Movieland Hall of Fame. And, if next • year's Academy Awards include an Oscar for the best performance by a locomotive, they'd better have TWO Awards with duplicate Oscars. Hollywood Boulevard is no place to stage ANOTHER duel of the rails! Hi, FISHERMEN!
