Ernest Marshall, a house painter by trade, was a deaf filmmaker
during the fifties and sixties. He made about half dozen amateur
16mm color movies of volunteer deaf actors, doing drama scenes
at Central Park in New York. His biggest problem was making
films without proper city permits and had to halt the filming
scenes when cops were around! He traveled across the East
Coast showing these films at deaf clubs. He passed away in 1999.
