A very interesting pictorial description of the grape growing industry of Southern California
12 May 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The slender thread of a love story, spun out under the above named title of a Kalem picture done by one of the California companies, does not entirely overshadow a very interesting pictorial description of the grape growing industry of Southern California. The picture was taken upon a ranch where 1400 acres are devoted to vineyards which yield something like fourteen tons of fruit to the acre. The picking and grinding of the grapes is shown and government gaugers and inspectors are seen testing the juice to determine its character. Great vats in which the grape juice is stored are seen in the picture. Rodney Vane's temptation consists in whether or not he shall drown his supposed rival for the affections of Millie Waine (Alice Joyce), in one of these vats into which he has accidentally fallen. But he thinks better of the plan and assists in pulling the rival out of danger. Later Vane discovers that he has been mistaken about the rival and makes up with his girl. - The Moving Picture World, November 4, 1911
