The Bait


On January 22, 1916, the movie The Bait was released. Described as, "a stirring drama of frontier life," a number of the scenes were filmed on California's Santa Catalina and Santa Rosa islands.


The bait was actually a woman who was used in an attempt to entrap a wealthy stranger. Reviews were mixed: "fascinating," "entertaining," and "poorly constructed."
