Hollywood trip--Wiseman--home movies
Our new feature comes from the Lula Belle and Scotty Wiseman home movie collection. This footage shows the country music duo Lulu Belle and Scotty in Hollywood during the 1938 production of Shine on, Harvest Moon. The Wisemans appeared in the film alongside Roy Rogers in one of the famous cowboy’s earliest leading roles. Scenes include the Hollywood sign, Rogers with his horse Trigger, the Republic Pictures main office building, the Universal Pictures building, the Iverson Ranch, and several movie sets.
The Wiseman collection contains 25 home movies from the duo’s heyday in the 1930s and 1940s that reveal the personal lives of a public family. Highlights include family gatherings, public appearances, trips within the USA and abroad, and Hollywood studio backlot footage.
