and a number of productions were filmed there. In 1923, the Trenton Film Plant was purchased by the Ontario government to house the studio and laboratory of the Ontario Motion Picture Bureau.

A few years later, she married CFL (Canadian Football League) Hall of Fame player Kaye Vaughan. For a time the couple lived in Ottawa (Ottawa, Ontario), but in 1967 they moved to the village of Knowlton, Quebec, in the heart of a ski area known as the Eastern Townships.

The outflow from this source flows into Bow Lake (Bow Lake (Alberta)) in the Canadian Rockies. It flows south to the village of Lake Louise (Lake Louise, Alberta) then turns east and flows through the town of Banff (Banff, Alberta) then through Canmore (Canmore, Alberta). The Ghost Lake (Ghost Lake (Alberta)) reservoir is formed upstream from the town of Cochrane (Cochrane, Alberta). The Bow then flows eastward to the city of Calgary (Calgary, Alberta); it continues on to form the South Saskatchewan River when the Bow joins with the Oldman River near Grassy Lake (Grassy Lake, Alberta) in southern Alberta. Its waters are further shed in the Hudson Bay through the Saskatchewan River, Lake Winnipeg and Nelson River. Communities located on the Bow include Lake Louise (Lake Louise, Alberta), Banff (Banff, Alberta), Canmore (Canmore, Alberta), Cochrane (Cochrane, Alberta), Calgary (Calgary, Alberta), and Arrowwood (Arrowwood, Alberta). Conservation and development This river is an important source of drinking water, water for irrigation and hydroelectric power. It also provides habitat for wildlife and opportunities for recreation such as fishing and boating. The Bow Falls are located on the river course, near Banff (Banff, Alberta). The Bow Valley Provincial Park was established in the Bow Valley and is a part of the Kananaskis Country park system. The river is on the right of the 8th to 14th holes of the Banff Springs Hotel golf course. Creation and development On July 20, 1871, the Crown Colony of British Columbia committed to Confederation with Canada. Under the union’s terms, Canada was to begin construction of a transcontinental railway to connect the Pacific Coast to the eastern provinces. Lothian, W.F. "A Brief History of Canada's National Parks." (Ottawa, Ontario: Environment Canada, 1987), p.13 As the Canadian Pacific Railway went underway in 1875 and surveyors began to study the land, location of the country’s natural resources sprouted further interest. Evidence of minerals quickly introduced the construction of mines and resource exploitation in Canada’s previously untouched wilderness. Exploration led to the discovery of hot springs near Banff, Alberta and in November 1885, the Canadian Government made the springs public property, removing them from the possibility of private ownership and exploitation. Lothian, p.17 This event brought about the beginning of Canada's movement towards preserving land and setting it aside for public usage as national parks. By the late 1880s, Thomas White, Canada’s Minister of the Interior, responsible for federal land management, Indian affairs, and natural resources extraction, began establishing a legislative motion towards establishing Canada’s first National Park in Banff. Lothian, p.22 right thumb The hotel from the opposite shore of the lake. (Image:Lake Louise 17092005.jpg) '''The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise''' is a Fairmont Hotel (Fairmont Hotels and Resorts) on the eastern shore of Lake Louise (Lake Louise (Alberta)), near Banff, Alberta. The original Chateau was gradually built up at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century by the Canadian Pacific Railway and was thus "kin" to its predecessors, the Banff Springs Hotel, and the Château Frontenac. The hotel's wooden Rattenbury Wing burned down on 3 July 1924, and was replaced by the current Barrot Wing one year later. The Painter Wing, built in 1913, is the oldest portion of the hotel still standing. The Mount Temple Wing, opened in 2004, is the newest wing of the hotel and features modern meeting facilities, including the Mount Temple Ballroom.

The glacier moves down from the icefield at a rate of several centimetres per day. Due to its close proximity to the Icefields Parkway, between the Alberta towns of Banff (Banff, Alberta) and Jasper (Jasper, Alberta), and rather easy accessibility, it is the most visited glacier in North America. The leading edge of the glacier is within easy walking distance; however, travel onto the glacier is not recommended unless properly equipped. Hidden crevasses have led to the deaths of unprepared tourists.

and on sets constructed around Los Angeles, California. Shooting began on October 9, 2002 and wrapped by March 2003. The quick shoot was only marred by two accidents: as Jack Sparrow steals the ''Interceptor'', three of the ropes attaching it to the ''Dauntless'' did not break at first, and when they did snap, debris hit Depp's knee, though he was not injured, and the way the incident played out on film made it look like Sparrow merely ducks.

Anyone involved in the film industry—from directors to the lowliest assistant—had to sign an oath of loyalty to the Nazi Party, due to opinion-changing power Goebbels perceived movies to have. (Goebbels himself maintained some personal control over every single film made in Nazi Europe.) Journalists who crossed the Propaganda Ministry were routinely imprisoned or shot as traitors
