Spoiled Children of Divorce


Were Early Filmmakers Children of Divorce?

It seems that many filmmakers are Children of Divorce. I’ve discussed a couple such as Stephen Spielberg who wrote ET as a way of trying to understand growing up in divorce.

Today I wondered if the early filmmakers, the ones who invented the industry seemingly from out of the blue, innovators, were from divorce. I read Charlie Chaplins autobiography a long time ago and remembered his difficult childhood.

So, here is what I found. I apologize because I skipped a couple of names because they belonged to kids from normal families. Many suffered death of a parent, poverty and then emigrated.

I found all these names from Wikipedia.

Mack Sennett. Not from divorce.

George’s melies. Normal family?

Eadweard Muybridge. Father died 1843, age 13.

Oscar micheaux. Normal family.

Auguste and Louis Lumiere. Normal family.

D.W.Griffith. Father died age 10.

Abel Gance. Illegitimate.

Cecil b. DeMille. Father died 1893 when DeMille was 12.

Orson Welles. Parents separated when Welles was 6. I had to see if Welles was later diagnosed as bipolar as this is the age between the first Jupiter opposition and secondary progressed lunar square (moods wings). He was!

Charlie Chaplin. Parents separated when Chaplin was around 1 or 2.
