HISTORY

The Jan 1926 AmCin reported that cinematographer Ed B. Du Par was on location at that time on a large sheep ranch near Santa Paula, CA, filming The Night Cry. One of the things he had to contend with was a forty-pound South American condor with a twelve-feet wingspan, according to the Mar 1926 AmCin. The condor sometimes landed on Du Par's camera, and at one point broke his matte box. Actress June Marlowe wrote an article in the May 1926 Picture-Play detailing several days on location at the ranch. There were roughly 900 sheep, she said, usually tended by two old Mexicans. Occasionally during filming, one sheep would wander away from the camera and the rest would follow. Only Rin-Tin-Tin, despite apparently never having worked as a sheep dog, was able to round them back up again.
Run-Tin-Tin also ran off a huge nanny goat that menaced the crew. ... More Less
