Overview

Since the mid 2000’s, Louisiana has been dubbed “Hollywood of the South.” But filmmakers have long been fascinated with Louisiana. By 1898, the film industry recognized that Louisiana’s diverse landscape, history, architecture and culture provided a great backdrop for films.

Over the years, film studios expanded the use of Louisiana into every genre, time period and location imaginable. From swamps to plantations, metropolitan cities to western plains, and yes, even other planets.

Hollywood on the Bayou has documented over 1,170 films that were made in or about Louisiana. These include feature length films, made-for-tv movies, documentaries and shorts. It covers six specific time periods of Louisiana film history (1898-2010). After a brief narration, the films are listed by title, year, director and other information. An alphabetical listing by title follows.

Meet the Author

Ed and Susan Poole are film accessory researchers, the only ones in the world. They are trying to preserve and document film history through the accessories before they are lost forever. Ed and Susan operate 2 major websites to expand learning about film accessories: LearnAboutMoviePosters.com – which is a sponsor supported website on all aspects of film posters; and MoviePosterDataBase.com – which is the only cross-referenced database on film posters and accessories with over 90,000 pieces online. These websites cover about 200,000 pages online and are visited by over 3 million visitors a year.

In addition, they are currently building an advance research site for institutions (GlobalCinemaResearch.org) with the focus on information that is overlooked, such as studio logos, lithographer info and tracking, National Screen Service and their control system for U.S. film accessory distribution. For example, they have documented 18,000 NSS trailer numbers, over 25,000 NSS poster and accessory numbers for research. In support of their new publication, they have also introduced the website HollywoodOnTheBayou.com.

The authors have spearheaded the documenting of production codes for identifying unknown press stills. Their latest edition (Movie Still Identification Book) has over 32,000 codes including 5,000 portrait codes to help with the process and used by such organizations as the Academy, Library of Congress, Smithsonian, Harvard, etc. It is the only one of its kind.

Ed and Susan wrote the first reference book on film posters in 1997 (Collecting Movie Posters; Mcfarland Publishers). Since then they have written 10 more research books.
