From 'back-of-town boy' to screen icon - Royal Gazette

If it was a film, it would open in the darkened auditorium of a small Hamilton cinema with a close shot of a young boy. Hes watching, spellbound, as a preposterous procession of flickering black-and-white images march across a movie screen. The year is 1922. The scene the old Aeolian Hall on Angle Street. And the film, a one or two-reel Hoot Gibson western, has cast a hypnotic spell on a young Earl Cameron. Cameron was just 5 that year and the motion picture industry, which already held him firmly in its thrall, wasnt much older. The storytelling techniques and pantomime acting of the silent films that captivated Cameron from the moment he first glimpsed the interplay of light and shadows washing across a screen seem impossibly crude by todays standards. Most of those early films were simple (not to mention simple-minded) morality tales struggles between good and evil as played out by ridiculously overblown, white-hatted heroes and moustache-twirling baddies. Somehow, despite being routinely outnumbered, outgunned and outwitted, the exaggerated paladins of courage, selflessness and derring-do always triumphed over the dastardly designs of the equally cartoonish evildoers by the final fade-out. Despite its obvious technical and aesthetic shortcomings, the new medium of motion pictures, with its idealised characters, faraway settings and unyielding moral codes, proved instantly addictive. At the time, theatres such as Bermudas Aeolian Hall were among the most mysterious and exciting places on the whole island for children. When Cameron left his house on nearby Princess Street, entered the Aeolians doors and planted himself in one of its cracked-leather seats, the magic lamp of the projector immediately whisked him far away from Bermudas 20 claustrophobic square... The youngest of six children, Camerons stonemason father had died suddenly in 1922. His mother took a succession of jobs in Bermudas hotels to keep the family together. It was a hardscrabble life, one made even more onerous by what he has called the rigid form of racial discrimination, which existed on the island at the time. The schools, cinemas, hotels and even churches practised this evil way of life, which was contrary to the ways of the God I had always believed in, he has said. Perhaps it was natural that he would seek both escapism and the illusion of justice and happy endings at the movies, since he now knew fair play was far from guaranteed in real life. As an adult, of course, it was a yearning for fair play,. Source: www.royalgazette.com
