The Rancho Camulos Museum’s celebration of Dolores of Dolores Del Rio’s 1928 movie Ramona will feature a day of Ramona-themed activities on Saturday, Nov. 10, from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
This full-length silent film, once considered lost but now recovered and restored, is one of four American-made Ramona films based on Helen Hunt Jackson’s 1884 novel of the same name.
The Ramona connection is one of the reasons Rancho Camulos became a National Historic Landmark in 2000. It is still the only National Historic Landmark in Ventura County.
Preceding the 3:00 p.m. screening, internationally recognized film historian Hugh Monro Neely will share the amazing history and backstory of this Edwin Carew directed epic. Earlier in the day Mr. Neely will also do a presentation on the DW Griffith 1910 Ramona starring Mary Pickford that was filmed on location at Rancho Camulos and is regularly shown as part of their docent led tours.
Visitors can also take docent-led tours of the historic buildings, visit exhibits such as the new Tataviam Interpretive area, and engage with living history characters. Step back in time at Rancho Camulos, where the history, myth, and romance of old California still linger.
