At our September meeting:
We had a guest speaker from the University of Maryland , Department of Geology, Dr. Thomas Holtz, Jr. He presented a history of Dinosaurs in movies. He touched on a number of early techniques used to bring dinosaurs to the cinema: stop motion, rubber skins over dinosaur models, and costumes on other animals to make them look like dinosaurs.
After a fascinating presentation covering advancements in cinema and a lively Q&A session, we watched the 1925 silent classic "The Lost World".
In this movie, an expedition to South America revealed the existence of dinosaurs. The crew from the expedition managed to bring a live brontosaurus back to London only to see it make it's great escape to the Thames River.
