Yolanda (film)

Yolanda is a 1924 silent film historical film drama produced by William Randolph Hearst (through his Cosmopolitan Productions) and starring Marion Davies. Robert G. Vignola directed as he had Enchantment (1921) and several other Davies costume films. The film is extant at Cinematheque de Belgique and the Museum of Modern Art and a trailer survives at the Library of Congress. The film began production as a Metro-Goldwyn film, with the company becoming Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in May 1924.

This was the second Marion Davies vehicle produced by Cosmopolitan from a Charles Major novel, the first being the phenomenally successful (and expensive) When Knighthood Was in Flower in 1922. Unlike Knighthood, Yolanda was not financially successful.

Today, cargo from the wreckage, including British toilets, bath tubs and pipes, is visited by recreational divers.
