"WAY BACK WHEN" WEDNESDAY - 100 years ago this week

LA Company Filming in Santa Barbara

A group of actors and a film crew from Los Angeles were in SB in October 1919 making a movie called "Peddler of Lies." The film starred Dagmar Godowsky, an actress known for playing a temptress on screen.

Apparently, her off-screen life was not much different. Later in her life when she was asked about the number of husbands she had had, she answered, "Two of my own, my dear, and several of my friends." (Image: Photoplay Journal, June, 1920)


All the "Way Back When" Wednesday posts from this year are part of the many items in my latest book Way Back When: Santa Barbara in 1919. Available in Santa Barbara bookstores and at Amazon.com beginning in November 2019.
