In fact, the term“cliffhanger” used to describe suspenseful movies today originated in Fort Lee in the early 1900’s. As pioneer production companies searched the area looking for locations to shoot western films and “wild west” scenes, they discovered the Palisades and Fort Lee. It was here that many early western movies were filmed and the term “cliffhanger” was born.
