Thomas Ince from the Author: Brian Taves. Ince turned movie-making into a business enterprise. Progressing from actor to director and screenwriter, he revolutionized the motion picture industry through developing the role of the producer. Taves chronicles Ince's life from the stage to his sudden death as he was about to join forces with media tycoon William Randolph Hearst. He explores Ince's impact on Hollywood's production system, the Western, his creation of the first American movies starring Asian performers, and his cinematic exploration of the status of women in society.

The Native American Stereotype In Early Hollywood from the Author: Jeremy M. Planteen. The stereotype of the headdress clad, horseback-riding, tipi-dwelling Native American is ubiquitous in American-influenced pop culture around the world, with much of the discourse and nearly all of the popular media representations of Native Americans being exclusively of this type. The development of the stereotype had several important steps on its way to its place in modern pop culture, starting as far back as first contact in the New World but gaining an incredibly powerful foothold with the visual exhibitions of George Catlin, P.T. Barnum, and the later Wild West Shows of William Cody and the Miller Brothers. It is the inclusion of Native performers in Cody's and particularly the Millers' shows that ultimately leads to the Hollywood Indian. Influenced by the easy availability of props and performers from a wintering 101 Ranch show troupe, director Thomas Ince creates the first 'real' Westerns and irrevocably ties the image of the Plains warrior with the story of Manifest Destiny, expansion, and the very idea of 'Indian-ness.'

Movie Studios Of Culver City from the Author: Julie Lugo Cerra. After watching pioneer filmmaker Thomas Ince film one of his famous Westerns on Ballona Creek, city founder Harry Culver saw the economic base for his city. Culver announced plans for the city in 1913 and attracted three major movie studios to Culver City, along with smaller production companies. “The Heart of Screenland” is fittingly etched across the Culver City seal. These vintage images are a tour through the storied past of this company town on the legendary movie lots bearing the names of Thomas Ince, Hal Roach, Goldwyn, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Lorimar, MGM-UA, Columbia, Sony Pictures, DeMille, RKO-Pathe, Selznick, Desilu, Culver City Studios, Laird International, the Culver Studios, and such nearly forgotten mini-factories as the Willat Studios. On these premises, Gone With the Wind, The Wizard of Oz, Citizen Kane, E.T: The Extra-Terrestrial, and other classics were filmed, along with tens of thousands of television shows and commercials featuring Elvis Presley, the Beatles, Michael Jackson, and many others.
