James "Bennie" Kent documented life in Oklahoma with moving pictures from the turn of the 20th century through two world wars. With his trademark derby hat, he could be seen with his film camera and tripod at most Oklahoma milestone events, and historical figures like Quanah Parker, Geronimo, Theodore Roosevelt, and many early Oklahoma governors passed before his lens. This week on LoyalTV, join us in "Bennie's" hometown of Chandler to honor his life and work as an early pioneer of film and moving pictures.
