On September 4, 1911 (109 years ago today), the one-reel silent movie How Algy Captured a Wild Man was released. The movie was filmed on California's Santa Cruz Island. The Santa Barbara Weekly Press called it, "A real 'sure-'nuff' dandy show. Anyone with any sense of humor will enjoy this picture story."
This is one of about 250 movies that were filmed on California's Channel Islands.
