The Valley Of The Giants (1919)/Lost film

October 2nd, 2008 by Anne Richardson · No Comments · 1910's, Lost film, Oregon film, Oregon film old definition, Oregon location (primary)

The Valley Of The Giants (1919) is the film production during which leading man Wallace Reid was injured on set in a train accident (!) and treated with morphine so the production could continue. Unable to shake his dependence, he remained addicted, and productive, until the toll on his health was too great. He died at age 31, an enormous star.

Directed by James Cruze, The Valley of the Giants is a lost film.

Because The Valley Of The Giants was shot in Southern Oregon, I sorrowfully claim this sad chapter of cinema history as part of Oregon’s film history.


News flash! Shelve the tragic regrets!

In October 2010, Library of Congress received a digital copy of a newly discovered print of The Valley Of Giants, as a gift from the Russian film archive, Gosfilmofond. How wonderful!
