The second filming of Bret Harte's Salomy Jane's Kiss was given a sumptuous production by Paramount. This time around, the beautiful Jacqueline Logan portrayed the daughter of an outlaw leader (Charles Ogle) who saves a handsome stranger (Maurice "Lefty" Flynn) from a lynching. As it turns out, both Salomy's father and the stranger have been falsely accused of crimes by an old family enemy. One of the more forgotten leading ladies of the silent era, Jacqueline Logan played Mary Magdalene in Cecil B. DeMille's The King of Kings (1927). She was present on the very same Culver City sound stage almost forty years later during the filming of the crucifixion scene in The Greatest Story Ever Told (1964), this time, however, a mere face in the crowd.
