Happy belated birthday to New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment, which celebrated its 100th anniversary as a state this week. One century ago, on January 6, 1912, the New Mexico Territory was admitted to the union by Congress. And throughout its existence the state has been a major part of cinema and TV history. Actually, films have been shot there since the 19th century, as you'll see below, and Selig Polyscope Company had an early studio in Las Vegas, NM, through the 1910s, mainly for producing Westerns starring Tom Mix. In 1912 alone, Mack Sennett, D.W. Griffith and Thomas Ince shot shorts there. And in the 21st century the state's link to filmmaking has increased tremendously.
