        A film researcher sent this to me a while back but I was not sure what to make of it:

        It is a frame from a film made at a Bronx studio, Biograph Studios in 1913.  I was asked if I could confirm if the house is on the Riverdale campus of Mount Saint Vincent with Font Hill Castle in the distant background.  Does this look familiar to anyone?

            I know that the Biograph Film Studio was located in Tremont section of the Bronx. They also filmed Car 54 Where you there.  The Edison Studio at 2628 Decatur Ave & Oliver Place in the Bedford Park section of the Bronx. This is the area where the first Frankenstein movie was made.

              However,. The spacing of the gaps on the tops of the Fonthill Castle at My St. Vincent are narrow and do not match the Tower in the Photo .  It may be located in the Bronx or Westchester county
