Fort Lee, NJ, or Hollywood East

There's a fabulous article on about Fort Lee, New Jersey's history as a center for filmmaking in the early days of the movies. While brief, it's still a great article; the best tidbit is the discovery of rolls of film buried beneath the soil at the site of the old Eclair studio. Don't miss this one.

Even more: The article was written as New Jersey prepares to commemorate next year as the centennial of the first studio opening in Fort Lee. Turner Classic Movies is currently in the process of preparing a 10-part series on the history of the American film industry. Titled “Moguls and Movie Stars: A History of Hollywood,” the documentary is scheduled to air in 2010.

I can't wait!
