While browsing through my files, I came across this and thought I'd share it. It's one of the few stills available from Portland's first motion picture, "A Nugget in the Rough," released in 1917. That's a young Ruth Wieland in the middle. This was a few years before she became a cult queen, the "Warder of the Purple Robes." Her mother, May Otis (later May Blackburn) produced the film for the Starlight Film Company. Which, not surprisingly, she owned.
