Syracuse is known for it’s history in the salt industry, but did you know that it’s also an important part of film history as well?
Eugene Logan was a local photographer and filmmaker back in the early 1900’s and is most famously known for his romantic melodrama film, “A Clouded Name.” Made in 1922, the film starred soon-to-be famous actress, Norma Shearer. This film sparked her career path to Hollywood where she made even more films, became one of the biggest known actresses in the 1930’s, and the first person to be nominated for five Academy Awards. Some scenes from the film even took place in Syracuse, capturing what essentially helped to make Syracuse a historical city.
