Your ciphers got too hard for me. I'll guess Ernest Shackleton because you've been talking about snow.

Nate Maas said...

Judi, thanks for the guess, but it's not Shackleton.

DAG said...

Finally Nate one I can recognize.

D.W. Griffth

Nate Maas said...

Congratulations, DAG. It is D.W. Griffith. If you noticed, the first letter of each word in the cipher spells "Hollywood."

Rob From Amersfoort said...

Thats a clever clue!

DAG said...

Thanks Nate,

To be honest I just happened to have recognized the photo.

Nate Maas said...

Good eye, DAG! Film has been on my mind as this term I started teaching a new class - History Through Film.

DAG said...

Sounds like a great course. I once had an entire semester on silent films. And most of that was D.W.Griffth films. Unfortunately most historical films are not so accurate with perhaps "The Longest Day" and Tora,Tora Tora" being the exceptions

DAG, my students learn about historical events/time periods and then we watch a film centered around that time. I'm moving chronologically through US history, so we started with 1776 (the musical). After studying about the early United States, I got a big kick on the students' faces when John Adams suddenly broke into song for the first time. I didn't tell them it was a musical beforehand.
