This film is shown often at the Plainfield Library in Plainfield, NJ. The film was shot in a Chinese Garden in Plainfield, NJ, built by a local businessman of the time. Some pieces of the gardens are still there.
I understand the film premiered at a local movie theater in Plainfield and Mary Pickford was there. Many silent films were made in the Plainfield, NJ area particularly in Westfield, NJ and Fort Lee, NJ at that time. D. W. Griffith was said to have liked the terrain of the area. But then he found out about the weather in California, and all movie making went west.
