A Cold Day
27 September 2018 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

The picture begins with a shot of the Horseshoe Falls, then pans south, past the American Falls, and onward. It pauses occasionally to show groups of people tramping across the the frozen river. Eventually the circular pan takes the camera's eye back to the falls. The movie ends with the roaring American Falls center stage,

This movie is credited to Porter as director, but I strongly suspect he wasn't involved, beyond sending the cameramen and equipment north and approving which of the takes was printed for viewing. By this time, circular pans had become standard shots for the movies.
