The famed Henrik Ibsen play about a legendary traveler embarking upon a dangerous journey was the basis for the 1941 silent film Peer Gynt, originally created as a Northwestern University project, which features an early appearance by future film star Charlton Heston. It was shot along the shores of northern Illinois, Wisconsin, and Lake Michigan. Twenty-four years later, the picture was reedited with added footage and a voice-over by siilent film icon Francis X. Bushman, and released three years after that, in 1968. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi
