Short Gene Stratton Porter Films

As I was going through my Gene Stratton-Porter videos to make a round up post I found some others from different sources. I thought that these three you would enjoy.

Gene Stratton- Porter Interpreter

A report on an interpreter who does Gene Stratton-Porter from Indiana. It includes her talking about Stratton-Porter’s life and does a reading of poetry.

After Limberlost: Gene Stratton-Porter’s Life in California

Although the reinacting at the beginning is pretty terrible, it does do a nice job showing some highlights of Limberlost. Then we turn to Dr. Meg G. DeMakas of Indiana University Norwest talks about Stratton-Porter in Indiana. Then she travels to San Francisco. The story in Hollywood is picked up by Douglas J. Eboch of Arts Center College. Most Stratton-Porter things focus on her time in Indiana, but this one takes a look at her time in California. They don’t really give biographical details, but it offers some beautiful shots of three homes she created in California plus some other associated sites. You’ll enjoy it.
