Movie Fact #821 – April 14th, 2015:

The resulting 1927 film “Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans” features enormous stylized sets that create an exaggerated, fairy-tale world. The city street set alone reportedly cost over US$200,000 to build and was re-used in many subsequent Fox productions including director John Ford’s 1928 film “Four Sons”. It won an Oscar for Unique and Artistic Production at the first Academy Awards ceremony in 1929 which was the equivalent of Best Picture and this was the only year that this award was ever given out. It did good I think.
