The 1917 movie The Bottle Imp was actually filmed in Montecito, California, although numerous publications stated otherwise, such as this one:


"Robert Louis Stevenson laid the scene of The Bottle Imp in Hawaii – so off to Hawaii sailed the Lasky-Paramount directors in search of the real thing in both settings and actors for their film adaptation." – New-York Tribune, March 11, 1917
