Lewis Moomaw/Oregon filmmaker

October 4th, 2008 by Anne Richardson · 2 Comments · 1920's, Oregon director, Oregon filmmaker

Lewis Moomaw (1889 – 1980) was born in Bend, Oregon. With four other filmmakers, he founded American Lifeograph Company in Portland in 1910. Their production facility in SE Portland was Oregon’¬ís first film studio. Moomaw made newsreels, industrials, and feature length films, including The Chechahcos (1924) and Flames (1926).

On October 31, 1919, Lewis Moomaw and his wife traveled with Danish actor Jean Hersholt and his wife at the Crown Point Chalet in Corbett, Oregon. You can see Moomaw’s guest book signature, along with those of dozens of other silent era movie figures, on the wonderfully researched Crown Point Chalet website. ( Anne’s editorial note: Sadly, this website is no longer in existence. I trust that the guest book is still safe and sound somewhere, though!)

A wide range of Hollywood guests came to enjoy the views from the new Columbia Gorge highway – everyone from Ronald Colman to Theda Bara to Ilya Tolstoy (the filmmaking son of Count Leo, who knew?).
