The great performers of the early 1800s are being immortalized in a new infographic by Forbes titled “The Great Performer of the First Five Years of the 1900s.”
The infographic takes a look at a list of people from the 1800’s who had a career that has since gone down in history, and the reasons they made their mark on the world.
The infographic features figures like Eliza Addams, George Washington and Florence Nightingale, and even includes some of the best of them:Emma Watson (1913-1925) is known for her role as Alice in Wonderland’s Merida in The Wizard of Oz.
But she also had a memorable career, as the film’s director, Robert Altman, remembers when she was asked by the director about her acting skills: “Emma had a great voice, a good voice.”
Other notable figures in the world of theater are George Gershwin (1906-1992), whose work is often cited as one of the greatest of the 20th century.
He is remembered for his musicals, including The Music Man and the songs of his sister-in-law, Clara Barton.
And even though his most famous work was The Sound of Music, he also worked as a stage manager for theaters including The Old Vic and The Royal Albert Hall, where he was known as the man who created the costumes.
And he was also a prolific author, having penned two books: The Art of Living and The Art Of Manliness.
In the infographic, the first five years of 1900 are also shown, with the infographic highlighting how many of the world’s greatest artists made their way to Hollywood.
The infographic also offers a look back at the great movies that made their marks on the public eye during the early 1900s.
And it’s a good thing they didn’t make the jump to television.
There were many films and television shows released in the 1800 and early 1900’s that are still considered classics, and Forbes even provides some trivia for readers: “Did anyone else wonder why this movie that made it to the big screen in the 90s wasn’t on TV?
It had an old-fashioned story that still resonates today.
And it was a big budget movie.
What did you think?
The story of how these things made it onto television?”
