Foolish Wives is released

On January 11, 1922, Erich von Stroheim's epic film Foolish Wives was finally released. Although much of the filming took place near California's Monterey, a couple of sources stated that some scenes were filmed on Santa Catalina Island.


"A new production to be called Foolish Wives, which he [Stroheim] will stage at Catalina, where a reproduction of Monte Carlo will be built with the island scenery and mountains as a background." – Moving Picture World, June 19, 1920


"A dozen elaborate sets are now being built for Foolish Wives. On Catalina . . . is being erected [a] duplicate of the Casino at Monte Carlo." – Motion Picture News, August 14, 1920
