Movies & Million-Dollar Mansions, Behind the Scenes at the "Flying A," & Silents on the Islands

Behind the Scenes at the "Flying A"

A scene from "After the Storm." (Pictures and the Picturegoer, October 23, 1915)

From Real Life to the Screen

A large trunk washed up on the beach in Santa Barbara, California after a big storm in 1915. When the trunk was opened, an infant was found, snuggled in blankets.

Two "Flying A" actresses were walking along the beach at this time and witnessed the discovery. They told others at the studio, and the story was made into a silent movie titled After the Storm. – Pictures and the Picturegoer, October 16, 1915

(This story and more will be included in my upcoming book, Behind the Scenes at the "Flying A," due out this fall.)
