Personal Quote:

[about the early days of the motion picture industry] Picture making can hardly be said to have developed. The art itself is an evolution--its branches developed. Everything was so absolutely new that the first producers had to evolve their own standards.

Trivia:

Died in 1941 in Los Angeles several days after he was hit by a bus while crossing a street. He had long since lost whatever money he made during his salad days in the silent era, and died penniless. A friend from those days, director William P.S. Earle, bought a plot in Forest Lawn Cemetery and had Blackton's ashes interred there. See more »
