Storyline

No land nor period was more given to romance than the Spanish American in the early part of the 19th century. The influence of the warm constant sun, without excessive amenity was conducive to lethargy and lethargy is the seed of romance. The dreamer is a romancer. This Biograph story starts some time before Mexican independence was proclaimed in California, which occurred in 1822. Perdita Arguello, the pretty Spanish senorita is beloved by Jose Manuella, a wealthy young Spaniard, who migrated to the new world in search of adventure. A man of qualities, he surrenders claim upon the girl when he finds her heart is given to Pedro Cortes, a handsome troubadour of the village. Cortes is just the sort of fellow to impress a thoughtless and unsophisticated girl with his gentle persuasive manner together with his talent as a musician.

Trivia

The monument to this film was erected and dedicated near the site on which this film was made at the Forbidden City Restaurant. The 2.8 ton monument was stolen overnight, under mysterious circumstances in April 2005, but was found almost one year later near a garbage bin not far from where the monument stood on Vine Street in Hollywood. Because of this vandalism and questionable theft of the monument, and its controversy that the first movie in Hollywood was of a Latino based storyline, the company felt this was discriminatory to the Latino community, and disassociated its business with the district of Hollywood, and moved its corporate headquarters to downtown Los Angeles. Currently Biograph is located in Los Angeles, CA. See more »

The Mask of Zorro
13 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

A short film rather than a movie, it has the feel of 'The Mask of Zorro' where a Spanish woman (Catherine Zeta Jones) is the illegitimate daughter of a Californian. Old California is basically Spain coming to the west coast of America in the 19th century.
