BEATRIZ MICHELENA TO FILM "THE DEAD LINE" AT BOULDER


Beatriz Michelena, the well-known California actress and prima donna, has launched a new motion picture enterprise with San Francisco as headquarters and she and her company are now at Boulder Creek in the Santa Cruz Mountains, ready to begin work on a stirring photodrama of early California, says the Examiner.

The play, written for Miss Michelena by Earl Snell is called "The Dead Line." According to the actress, it is in some respects reminiscent of her "Salomy Jane," famed the world over as a masterpiece based upon the history of California in its early epoch of lawlessness and chivalry.
