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

Postby John Bengtson » Mon Jan 22, 2018 1:47 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.
