Kindred of the Dust


On February 27, 1922, the tear-jerker Kindred of the Dust was released. Some scenes were filmed on California's Santa Catalina Island. A young wife with a baby discovers that her husband is a bigamist and leaves him. She and the child are shunned by society – like it was her fault or something! – until she marries a young man and ends up saving his life.


"The characters are all incredible, and every one of them is a glutton for suffering." – New York Times, August 28, 1922


A copy survives in the George Eastman House.
