The stars of the groundbreaking silent western The Squaw Man (1914), the first feature film lensed in Hollywood, Dustin Farnum and Winifred Kingston reunited under the direction of Hobart Bosworth for this minor romantic melodrama set in old California. Farnum plays the title-role, a descendant of the first American settlers who goes in search of the Spanish aristocrat responsible for his parents' deaths. Along the way he falls for a beautiful Mexican noblewoman. Farnum and the British-born Kingston were husband and wife in real life. Having settled in California for his health, veteran stage star Hobart Bosworth opened his own studio space on North Occidental Avenue near downtown Los Angeles in 1913. The old Bosworth lot was still in use as a rental facility as late as the 1990s.
