Edward Hilbert possesses many past lives, two of interest today’s blog: that of child actor and that of cinematographer.
As a cute and photogenic child, Edward was cast in two feature length movies including “Meseauto” (1934) directed by Bela Gaal. As an adult, he worked behind the camera as a TV news photographer. In fact, one early job upon arriving in Baltimore was as a cameraman shooting the opening ceremony of the Harbor Tunnel.
Gabor Biro is Edward’s long-time friend. He lives in Hungary and is retired from working many years in the Hungarian film industry. Mr. Biro has graciously offered his support of “Freedom Dance,” and is introducing his European industry contacts to our documentary. Our thanks, Mr. Biro, for your friendship and generous help!
Until next time…
