Memorable Manitobans: Charles McKenzie Lambly (1893-1940)

Filmmaker.

Born at Inverness, Quebec in 1893, he moved to Winnipeg and in 1910-1911 assisted pioneer Winnipeg filmmaker Jean Arsin in making crude animated movies in the city’s North End. In 1926 he created a 20-25 minute film called Romulus and Remus commissioned by the Montreal Catholic Diocese. This film which has been lost was noteworthy for its artwork (showcard cut-outs). Fellow Winnipeg filmmaker Francis Holmes assisted Lambly on the Romulus and Remus film. During the 1920s and 1930s he worked as a photographer in Winnipeg. He died at Vancouver, British Columbia on 14 April 1940.
