In his film Cloud-Land Elk, A.M. Harper elaborated on the standard home movie format by including intertitles and credits along with documentation of a hunting trip in the mountains of New Mexico and Colorado.
Born in Yorktown, Texas in 1901, Albert Morris “A.M.” Harper was a longtime resident of Alice where he owned and operated a successful oil field trucking company.  Financial success followed from the early boom in the Texas oil industry and enabled Harper to enjoy a recreational home in Port Aransas and many adventurous pursuits, including safari expeditions in Africa and Alaska.
