Weekly Web Harvest (weekly)

  • “Norman O. Dawn (1884–1975) was a relatively obscure yet historically significant early special effects cinematographer, inventor, artist, and motion picture director, writer, and producer. He worked with many important film pioneers including Mack Sennett, Carl Laemmle, Irving Thalberg, and Erich von Stroheim. The Dawn collection features 164 display cards that illustrate over 230 of the 861 special effects Dawn created in more than 80 movies.  Also present is a small amount of manuscript material, including correspondence, drawings, and reminiscences.
