The Boy Mayor
Directed by Henry McRae, The Boy Mayor dramatizes a unique interlude in Oregon's history. In July 1914, Eugene J. Rich was chosen as Portland's "Boy Mayor," part of an effort to provide guidance to boys in danger of delinquency. Later that year, the Universal Film Manufacturing Company brought Rich to Hollywood. The Boy Mayor premiered in Portland at the Star Theatre at SW Washington and Park in December of 1914. Following its restoration led by the Oregon Historical Society, it was shown at a second premiere at The Hollywood Theatre on Thursday, April 24, 2014.
