The dawn of the Oklahoma film industry came in May 1904 when Thomas Edison sent a motion picture film crew to the famed 101 Ranch near Ponca City to shoot a series of Western shorts, according to Jeff Moore, Project Director of OK Pop Museum.

Moore is co-curator of the Oklahoma@the Movies exhibit currently on view at the Oklahoma History Center, which contains artifacts tracing the state's filmmaking history.
