Sent by director Cecil B. DeMille to his business partner Jesse Lasky in 1913. DeMille rented a horse barn for $75 a month where he shot the western The Squaw Man, Hollywood’s first full-length feature film. [image source, information source]
(thank you, oldfilmsflicker, for the submission!)
edit: the Sam mentioned is Sam Goldwyn, who helped found Paramount and Goldwyn pictures, which would later become M-G-M. He was also Lansky’s brother-in-law.
