F WANT PLACE TO MAKE LOVE?
LOOK IN CARD INDEX
"Where do they find such lovely
places?"
Frequently the question has been
asked by persons who are watching
a motion picture. They wonder
where the photoplay producers find
the scenery. ,
Out at the studios of the Jesse L.
Lasky Feature Play Co., at Holly
wood, Cal., there is one man who
does nothing else but ride around in
his big automobile and "discover"
places that are ideal for backgrounds
to be used in motion picture plays. He
goes to the seashore, to the fields, to
the mountains, and everything he
sees he carefully reports on little
cards made for the purpose. He finds
ideal places for love-making lots of
them and he discovers excellent lo
calities for battles, dark "crimes" and
"accidents."
At the studio he has a big card in
dex system by which he keeps ac
count of all these places. It saves a
lot of time. When the director of a
production wants a nice, quiet place
for a love scene or a nice, noisy place
for an exciting chase, all he has to do
is to look it up in the card index. Then
an entry is made on the card stating
that the scene has been used, be
cause the same scene is never used
twice in a Lasky production. Per
sons who see photoplays remember
scenes.
One of the chief features of the
card index system of "locations" is
that a photograph of every place is
made and attached to the card with
exact directions how to reach the lo
cation. There also is a list of beauti
ful homes and estates where the
players are welcome any time to
make scenes for production. But in
all the classifications in the card in
dex none is so big nor so frequently
added to as the list of places suitable
for love scenes guaranteed to please.
