Mignon - an unusual movie


On January 18, 1915, the movie Mignon was released. Some scenes were filmed at one of the palatial estates in Montecito, California. It was an unusual movie – a silent movie based on a French opera that was based on a novel by Goethe.


However, reviews were favorable. "Exquisitely beautiful settings." – Bioscope [London, England], June 24, 1915.


"Beatriz Michelena's portrayal of the title part is said to be as nearly perfect as the art of acting in pictures can be effected." – Motion Picture News [New York, New York], December 12, 1914
