The Red Kimona (1925) Poster

Trivia

The story was based on a true story and Gabrielle Darley was a real person, but producer Dorothy Davenport did not secure her permission to film the events in her life. When Darley, who had since moved on to marry and become an upstanding member of her community, found out that a film of her life had been made without her consent, she sued Davenport and financially ruined her. Matters of invasion of privacy by the media were not clear in 1925, and it's unlikely that Ms. Darley would have been able to win the case nowadays, since most details of the trial were a matter of public record.
