NOT the first film with Villa


The first film ever done with Pancho Villa was by our company, American Mutoscope & Biograph [us]. The film states the 1914 "Mutual" film "Life oif General Villa" was the first film ever done with Villa, WRONG... Life of Villa (1912) was, made by us. It also combines the behind the scenes stories about the making of the 1914 film with the making of our 1912 film. It is histrorically inaccurrate being passed of as "Accurate" which is not uncommon now.
