9.2. Quebec, Filmed on Location in Canada, 1950s

Patrick Knowles, Canadian Actor

From the Paramount Showmanship manual regarding the Canadian actor Patrick Knowles:

"Pat, who has been involved in adventure both on and off the screen, last had dealings with Canadian officers-all men-during World War II, when she served as a pilot in the Royal Canadian Air Force. Because of this hitch with the R.C.A.F. he found his assignment in "Quebec" particularly rewarding. The picture was shot on location in Canada, and between takes he renewed acquaintances with service friends. "

The tradition of Hollywood based production on location in Canada with selected Canadian talent was becoming a formula for success. The films would show in both Canada and the United States and would encourage investments from Canadians.
