"The Georgetown Loop" (1903) is a very short
documentary. The film is included in our program to illustrate the work
of Billy Bitzer, a star of Silent Hall of Fame.
Georgetown was a mining town in a mountainous region of Colorado. The
film shows what is apparently an excursion train running through a picturesque
area with passengers enjoying the scenery and waving handkerchiefs.
