Ramona

A film by Edwin Carewe
Starring Dolores del Rio, Warner Baxter, Roland Drew

In early California, powerful rancher Señora Moreno (Vera Lewis) is raising the mixed-race orphan Ramona along with her own son. Ramona (Dolores del Rio) falls in love with Alessandro (Warner Baxter), a Temecula Indian who works at the ranch. Defying Señora Moreno, Ramona elopes with Alessandro, and starts a new life embracing her Indian heritage. But her new family endures tragedy and persecution in an age that held little tolerance for Native Americans. Director Carewe, himself of Chickasaw descent (a very rare thing in Hollywood), represented a felicitous match for the material and a sensitive interpreter of the action.
