We're revisiting one of the interesting gems of Borrego Springs Film History.  Take a look:

Did you know:  The first film shot in the Borrego area was SOMETHING NEW (1920) by Nell Shipman about a story where the heroine is rescued by her boyfriend using a Maxwell Auto running cross country. This film is an infomercial for the Maxwell brand.  Many scenes of the western Borrego Badlands and the mountain areas of Warner Springs are used in the film.
