WAY BACK WHEN WEDNESDAY - 100 years ago this week, the Goldwyn Studio was filming at a Montecito estate. Most Santa Barbara folks were pretty much used to seeing "Flying A" film crews working in our area, but it must have caused quite a stir when a director, along with actors, actresses, and film crew spent six days filming here. The Goldwyn people were in Montecito getting exterior scenes for "Bonds of Love," which is supposed to take place on Long Island.
This is one of about 55 movies filmed in Montecito that I discovered while working on a book about silent movies made in Montecito. (Image: Motion Picture News, August 23, 1919)
