Movies & Million-Dollar Mansions, and Silents on the Islands

Kindred of the Dust

This domestic drama about a bigamist was released on February 27, 1922. It sounds like a real tearjerker. A newly married woman discovers that her husband is a bigamist. She leaves him and later gives birth. She and the baby are ostracized, except by her old high school boyfriend.

He wants to marry her, but his wealthy family objects. In order to keep the peace, she leaves.

It is yet another movie featuring a "noble suffering woman" that was more common on movie screens a century ago than now.


Some scenes were filmed on California's Santa Catalina Island. (There are no existing copies of this film.)
