The Woman in the Web


On April 8, 1918, the serial film The Woman in the Web was released. It had 15 episodes, some of which were filmed on California's Santa Cruz Island. The company ran into some very unusual weather during the filming.


"The players . . . journey to the Santa Cruz Islands [sic] to film 'sunny summer weather,' demanded in the script. But they bumped into a full-fledged snow flurry and stoutly maintain that the scenes made of snow clinging to the blossoming trees and plants are the most beautiful ever recorded." – Motography, April 20, 1918


There are no known copies of this film.
