the authority on Louisiana Film History

We believe more attention is needed to keep the facts of Louisiana being a major cornerstone for the film industry alive.

Over the years, we have created many articles about the wonderful film history of Louisiana. Some were used in our exhibits, some were in our Louisiana books and some we wrote for our newsletter.

We thought you might like seeing some of those articles, so we have divided them into 3 groups:


Celebrating Tennessee Williams

Jean Lafitte - the Reel Story


Cottage Plantation - Baton Rouge

Vitascope Hall


1917 Lone Wolf - The Making of Lone Wolf

1938 Jezebel - The Making of Jezebel

We ask that you please do not reprint them without permission.

We welcome any comments, questions or suggestions at:




We are building the foundation for Louisiana film research through books, exhibits, film prints, lectures/presentations, research and websites.
