Most people are familiar with the term “cliffhanger,” used to describe a movie filled with suspense, danger, and “seat-of-your pants” thrills. But did you know that the term originated out of the early serials filmed on the New Jersey Palisades in Fort Lee-the birthplace of the motion picture industry in America?
