Salomy Jane (1914, California Motion Picture Corp., 35mm print from Library of Congress) Beatriz Michelena, a noted San Francisco singer, began her film career with Salomy Jane, starring in eleven features for the CMPC, in San Rafael, from 1914 to 1917. Based on a Bret Harte story, the film is remarkable for its polished presentation and entertainment value, and could easily be mistaken as a production of the 1920s. It was first shown at the Edison Theater on August 30, 1915. This event is co-sponsored by the Anne T. Kent California Room, Marin County Free Library, with assistance from the California Film Institute.
