Frederick Burlingham

Known either as “Burlingham Adventures” or “Burlingham Travel Pictures”, Frederick Burlingham's little travelogues have been forgotten over time due to his premature death before most of the familiar travelogues we've come to love were made, particularly James FitzPatrick's “Traveltalks”. Yet his one-reelers and occasional longer productions were among the most visually impressive “scenics” of their era, especially those shot in the Swiss Alps before the war (August 1912) and after. Too bad not many are available for viewing these days.

His specialty was climbing where other cinematographers fear to venture. He wasn't the first to document the great heights with movie cameras (see the 1906 L'Ascension du Mont Blanc), but his footage was among the most impressive for its time. A popular book of his was published in 1914, titled How to Become an Alpinist. You can read it here, including a chapter dedicated to women who brave the slopes (including his wife): https://archive.org/details/howtobecomealpin00burliala

Other highlights documented for the cameras was his journey down a crater in Mt. Vesuvius in December 1914, traipsing through wild Borneo in 1920 (with the help of a hydroplane and plenty of coverage in vintage National Geographic magazines) and less exotic locales in the United States.

Apart from one Universal release, his pre-1918 films were handled mostly by British companies like British & Colonial Kinematograph. There was also a film made exclusively for the Swiss market in 1916: La Suisse inconnue: La vallée de Lötschenthal (Burlingham Films Montreux). Even though his contract with Paramount in Hollywood only lasted a year, he had little trouble selling his films to independent American firms on a states rights basis. Following a lucrative deal with Joe Sameth in January 1924, he set up a new office at 220 West 42nd Street. New York City and had big plans for his films until his unexpected passing from kidney failure on June 9th.

The Film Daily did an affectionate tribute to him, after his funeral in Cincinnati, Ohio, on June 15th.

We're going to miss Fred Burlingham, who was called home a few days ago. One of the most unusual figures of the business. With his long beard and his soft manner. Who loved to go out of the way places for shots. Burlingham was formerly a newspaper man. At one time he worked for James Gordon Bennett on the Paris Herald. That is he did... until Bennett noticed that Burlingham was going about Paris wearing sandals. That was too much for the aristocratic Bennett. He fired Burlingham on the spot. Because 'Burly' wouldn't buy regulation shoes.”

Audio Productions is one of those fascinating companies that have fallen through the cracks among movie historians and shouldn't. Information on it is scanty outside of vintage periodicals such as Business Screen since a huge bulk of its output involved corporate sponsored promotionals. It is a challenge to research actual titles for this company, let alone credit and background information on them, so the lists below are even less complete than my lists for Jam Handy and Wilding Inc. on the other thread. For example, I could not account for all 88 supposedly produced just between March 1937 and March 1940 alone, according to Richard Koszarski's Hollywood on the Hudson (Rutgers Press, 2008), nor the “hundreds” made for the United States armed forces according to Business Screen, October 1, 1963.

This company began as a subsidiary of Western Electric in June 1933 (an early name of “Trade Pictures Inc.” was quickly changed) and its earliest releases, Butterflies and Seed Dispersal, were theatrical versions of earlier 16mm educationals from a fellow member of the same family, Electrical Research Projects Inc. a.k.a. “ERPI”, which later evolved into Encyclopædia Britannica Films. In a situation resembling that of its sibling, Audio Productions was forced to “leave the nest” by 1941 as the FCC broke up what was perceived as a monopoly. Frank K. Speidell, who had succeeded the pioneering William Bach as president back in 1936, kept the company afloat during this difficult transition period alongside Charles L. Glett. For a while, this was a company pretty much owned by its employees all sharing stock, at least until it was taken over by yet another conglomerate, Novo Industrial Corporation, in April 1968. Many working here enjoyed what they were doing, making high quality movies that educated and promoted products that they cared about, that they stuck with the company for decades. When Speidell finally stepped down as president in 1965, Peter Mooney followed through during the next three decades and he too was a veteran since the thirties.

Throughout its existence, its headquarters were stationed in New York City, beginning in the Bronx and later moving “uptown” to Long Island. In January 1938, Paramount's former Astoria studio was successfully purchased by them and it was also here that the first wave of music “videos” famously known as “Soundies” were directed by Robert Snody. However, the U.S. Army Signal Corps moved into this particular facility a month and a half after Pearl Harbor and maintained control through 1970; this accounting for many of the “hundreds” of military films I mention above.

Particularly interesting to the TCM crowd are its early color films. After some unsuccessful involvement with the early Cinecolor process, ties with the eastern branch of Technicolor Inc. were well utilized both in-studio and “on location”. Among the noteworthy titles was an early road safety animated cartoon, Once Upon A Time, that is carefully profiled in depth by Jonathan Boschen at Cartoon Research (http://cartoonresearch.com/index.php/category/industrial-cartoons/ ). Most popular in their time, if not now, were the “Musical Moods” and these appear to still exist even if they are currently buried in the University of Southern California, Los Angeles archive and begging for rediscovery. Robert Bruce supervised the very first full-rainbow coverage of the United States (namely California, Kentucky and Vermont but he also covered Minnesota earlier in two-strip color), Mexico and Italy, while his reels of Ireland and Switzerland were contemporary to the first MGM Traveltalks shot there under James FitzPatrick's supervision. His footage of Venice initially shot for Barcarolle so excited Paramount's top brass that they recycled it more than once in their “Pictorials” and hired him to supervise their first feature in the newer color process, The Trail Of The Lonesome Pine. (Previously the mountain-of-stars had distributed some of his black and white “Scenics”, as covered on the other thread.)

As for Audio, it too made a few features of importance. Hidden Landscapes (I am guessing that is the correct title) was produced for E.R. Squibb & Sons with Fuller Mellish, C. Anthony Hughes, John Carmody and Don Gallaher in the cast; Film Daily lists it running 7 reels in its issue of March 24, 1934. Most successful was the 55 minute The Middleton Family At The New York World's Fair, directed by Robert Snody in glorious Technicolor and widely released by September 21, 1939. (Video: https://archive.org/details/the-middleton-family-1939 ) Mealtime Is Variety Time (58 minutes), also in color, was released June 13, 1951 for Fleischmann. In addition, its co-owned Eastern Service Studios Inc. or “ESSI”, facilities was well used by independent film-makers in the late thirties and early forties.

After it became a division of Reeves Communications by the mid-seventies, Audio Productions cut back on making motion pictures of importance and focused mostly on TV advertising, a field in which it played a key role much earlier than many other companies. Peter Mooney was still listed in charge of the 45th St. headquarters according to the 1990 Television & Cable Factbook (issue 58, Television Digest), eventually retiring and passing away at age 93 in 2005. The name “Audio Productions” is currently used with a company focused on recording work for both movies and TV.

Carl Dudley was described in his New York Times obituary of September 4, 1973 as “a trim zestful man who preferred to call his films of faraway places 'travel adventures' rather than travelogues”. His most famous title as a producer was that delightful Cinerama feature South Sea Adventure (a July 15, 1958 release), which I absolutely love for its bouncing red kangaroos shot with equally bouncy 180 degree three-camera set-ups and some stunning bungee jumping in the New Hebrides.

 

Unfortunately he never quite became a familiar name even among film buffs. Not that others in his field did either, apart from maybe James FitzPatrick's Traveltalks. Had he not retired rather early and passed away so suddenly when he was still just 62, he might enjoy more prominence today.

His early years of 1937-1944 were spent as a screenwriter for both features and shorts, including quite a few memorable ones in MGM's “Pete Smith Specialties” and “Crime Does Not Pay” series and, during the war years, key Warner Brothers productions such as Our African Frontier. Then he launched his own independent company, Dudley Pictures (sometimes listed as Dudley Productions), which catered both to the 16mm educational and promotional markets (railroads and airlines being key sponsors) while also providing 35mm short subjects for no less than six major studios: MGM, Warner Brothers, Republic Pictures, 20th Century-Fox, Paramount and Universal-International. The last of these, in particular, used his company for their 16mm United World 16mm subsidiary. In addition to the Cinerama feature, he was ahead of the competition with other wide screen formats such as CinemaScope, VistaVision and his own more economical Vistarama.

Double dipping here with a couple titles also appearing on six other threads. As usual, a complete filmography is impossible to find online, especially since he was equally prolific in TV production: providing many, many TV commercials (the Philip Morris ads that interrupted I Love Lucy were his) and providing footage for Wide, Wide World (NBC 1955-1958, with Dave Garroway as host) and It's A Wonderful World (39 shows produced for 1960-1963, with John Cameron Swayze). One particularly intriguing hour-long special worth resurrecting from the TV grave is New Guinea: The Land That Time Forgot (1964), directed by Dudley's top director of the later years, Otto Lang, along with famous commentator (and former Cinerama guru) Lowell Thomas.
