“Silents in the Canyon”
Travel back in time to the early days of LA’s movie-making magic and listen as THS board member Eric Dugdale tells tales from before film had sound. Featured in his discussion will be pioneering producer Thomas Ince, who filmed Westerns in our hills. Ince became known for using real Native Americans in his films, providing a school for their children and promoting them within the film industry. He was blood brothers with actor and Sioux Chief William Eagle Shirt. Come hear more about Topanga’s early days as a Western film mecca.
