"Salomy Jane" was the first feature-length production of the California Motion Picture Corporation (CMPC) whose studios were once located in the Sun Valley neighborhood of San Rafael.
It starred Beatriz Michelena, one of the first Latina film stars in moving pictures. Her husband, George Middleton, was a CMPC director and the San Rafael Studio Manager.
Much of "Salomy Jane" was filmed in Marin, including extensive footage near the West Marin town of Lagunitas where the CMPC built their "Hangtown" set. Scenic locations along the Russian River and in the Boulder Creek area near Santa Cruz are also featured in the film.
