For the Soul of Rafael (1920)
For the Soul of Rafael, once considered a "lost film," is a unique portrayal of Mexican-Spanish people as depicted by Hollywood in the silent film era. The film was Dorothy Yost's first screenplay. An under appreciated film pioneer, Yost worked on 94 films, including Alice Adams (staring a young Katherine Hepburn), as well as sophisticated Astaire/Rogers musicals such as The Gay Divorcee, Swingtime and Roberta.
