TO TAKE MOVING PICTURES
Hills of Santa Cruz a Setting for Enactments for Show House
The Selig Moving Picture Company which took the beach and ocean yacht race moving pictures, is to use the hills, the woods and canyons of Santa Cruz for the setting of dramas participated in by a troupe of thirty people under J. L. McGee, the Pacific coast representative for the Selig Company.
Permission has been granted by the Cowells and the rolling, mountainous country, with hills, canyons, woods, and winding roads will be just the place for scenic effects.
Western dramas will be the specialties, with cowboy and Indian scenes. The ox teams, one of the sights of the Big Tree road, will be brought into the pictures.
The company has been south and is expected here on Saturday.
