Crown Point Chalet, 1915-1927

October 1st, 2008 by Anne Richardson · No Comments · 1910's, 1920's, Side Notes

When silent films acquired sound, filmmakers and movie stars the world over expressed their regrets. Many had seen their non-verbal medium as a peacemaker, with the power to tear down the Tower of Babel which separates nations from each other.

Some of those idealists visited Oregon, to drive along the brand new Columbia River Highway and stay overnight at the Crown Point Chalet,the square building (no longer standing) in the lower right hand corner of the above postcard.

Signatures on a guest register are from Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, Ronald Colman, Billie Burke, Theda Bara, Fatty Arbuckle, Wallace Reid – and others..
