Film actually shot in Fort Lee, New Jersey
14 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though Griffith shot films in California during his "Fort Lee" period with Biograph - this film is one shot in Fort Lee, New Jersey. We are in the process of doing a frame by frame analysis of many of these Biograph films and we will match them to the locations as they exist today in Fort Lee.

Griffith used some of the same exteriors in Fort Lee from film to film

  • perhaps an alteration of the storefront here or there but essentially


the same locations. One of the famous exterior shots from this period is the storefront in "The Musketerrs of Pig Alley" that was dressed to resemble the Lower Eastside of Manhattan but in fact was Main Street in Fort Lee.

The Fort Lee Film Commission is very much involved in the research of locations from this period. Also, nice to see Max Davidson in this film
  • Max would go on to play a character in one of the "Our Gang" shorts -


the classic "Moan & Groan."
