Washington at Valley Forge -- February 22, 2015

Moving Picture World, 28-March-1914

In honor of George Washington's birthday, here is an ad for a Universal four-reeler, "Washington at Valley Forge."  Four reels was not a common length for a movie.  This was a "Universal Special Feature."  It starred Francis Ford and his frequent partner Grace Cunard.  Ford was the older brother of future director John Ford.  An actor named Pedro León played General Washington.
