Film Media and the Lighthouse

After my comment in Misc Tales Twenty-Eight about a movie with a lighthouse reference in it, I wondered aloud “How many more media sources have lighthouses in them?”

Well, off to Google and I started looking. There are many. I am going to list them by date, and if you know of more, please let me know.

As you will see, not much of the media uses a real lighthouse – mostly movie props.

The Lighthouse by the Sea

 1924 The Lighthouse by the Sea (theater movie) [USA] (Der Leuchtturm an der See, Rin-Tin-Tin’s letzte Heldentat, Rin-Tin-Tins Heldentat [German], O Farol da Ponta do Mar, Rin-Tin-Tin Guarda de Farol [Portuguese]) (+) () 

Based on a play by Owen Davis, LIGHTHOUSE BY THE SEA top-bills Warner Bros.’ most successful male star of 1924: dauntless doggy Rin-Tin-Tin. The “human” plot involves the efforts by the daughter (Louise Fazenda) of an aged lighthouse keeper (Charles Hill Mailes) to hide the fact that her father has gone blind. A scurrilous gang of rum runners take over the lighthouse and hold father and daughter captive. Rin-Tin-Tin comes to the rescue in spectacular fashion. Legend has it that screenwriter Darryl F. Zanuck so despised the notion of writing a Rin-Tin-Tin vehicle that he came up with a scene in which the canine star carried a baby back into a burning building (that scene doesn’t show up here, or in any other “Rinty” picture).

“Captain January,” a 1936 film starring Shirley Temple and Guy Kibbee. It was based on the 1891 book of the same name by Laura E. Richards. A little orphan girl named Star goes to live with an old lighthouse keeper at Cape Tempest, Maine but soon finds trouble when the truant officer comes calling to demand she go to school. Later in the story, the old lighthouse keeper loses his job to automation–a prophetic note–and Star is taken from him. The tearful good-bye scene will pull your heartstrings. The film also features actor Buddy Ebsen (later to play on “The Beverly Hillbillies”) who dances with Temple to the memorable song, “At the Codfish Ball.” There are several movie trailers online. Here’s one–http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0027421/. – Elinor DeWire

It is the the Fisherman’s Village in a waterfront mall, commercial boat anchorage and tourist attraction located in the world’s largest man-made small boat harbor in Marina del Rey, California. It is nestled on the eastern bank of main channel between Shanghai Red’s restaurant to the south and the Windward boatyard to the north. Constructed in the style of a New England fishing village, Fisherman’s Village comprises five brightly painted wooden buildings, a waterfront promenade, a lighthouse, water fountain and commercial boat docks. – Wikipedia

In more recent photos, the lighthouse has been repainted from a dull brown in the film to a bright sea blue colour.
