I need some help. Is anyone here into the old Chicago movie industry? I know that there were western films shout out along the canal route in the towns of Mount Forest and Summit. I cannot say for sure whether this was done by Essany or Selig, or one of the less known movie houses. Every one of the film archive sites I write tell me they never heard of this, and ask me where I got my information from. Oral history is one, but they also reported filming in local newspapers, but the sources I found never mentioned who. Anyone?
