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

The House of Scandals and its legal problems


This movie with the provocative title was released by Santa Barbara's "Flying A" studio in 1915. Back before the Internet, when the world was not so connected, there were a number of cases where two silent movies with the same or similar title were unknowingly released by two different studios. Such was the case with this movie.


Shortly before the "Flying A" released this movie, another studio had released a movie titled, The House of a Thousand Candles, and this studio promptly sued the "Flying A." Eventually, the suit was decided in the favor of the "Flying A."
