Two films - 1907 and 1913
4 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

The film reviewed here is not the Vitagraph film (which may or may not exist) but Gaston Méliès film of 1913 of the same name which has been wrongly posted on youtube as 1907. This would be a very remarkable film for 1907 and put Griffith to shame in 1908! But six years at this period was a long time in cinema history and it is in fact a rather run-of-the-mill melodrama on a familiar theme.

Gaston Méliès having been sent by brother Georges to the US in 1902 to safeguard his interests had by 1910 become a film producer in his own right (causing a permanent breach between the two brothers). Employing the Francis Ford (elder brother of John), he moved to California, establishing the "Star Ranch" in San Antonio, Texas and later in Santa Paula, California, where he shot mainly westerns either as Star-Film, the US branch of his brother's French film company as here or as "American Wild West Film Company". Surviving films are rare (Billy and his Pal 1911, filmed in Texas and watchable at http://www.filmpreservation.org/, is the only other I know of.

There is a 2015 film about Gaston Méliés which I have not yet seen - Gaston Méliès and his Wandering Star Film Company.
