The Red Kimono (1925) - comprehensive views all across LA

Unread post by SilentEchoes57 » Mon Jan 22, 2018 12:45 am

The Red Kimono (1925), a searing drama notably produced and written by women, captures a remarkably comprehensive visual record of early Los Angeles. From Broadway and posh gated communities to Chinatown and the amusement park piers, these settings, along with numerous stretches of still residential Wilshire Boulevard, and long lost jails, train stations, and skid row locales, all play pivotal roles in the film. Here's just a sample of the variety of locations appearing in this film.

I found this a fascinating movie, much better than some reports would suggest. One thing: is the title THE RED KIMONO or THE RED KIMONA, which was the title on the upload I watched last year?
