June-December 1917 [Exhibitors Herald]: “Enid Markey leads the all star cast in new Corona film, Curse of Eve. Beautiful California scenery is used to represent garden of Eden in Corona's "Curse of Eve" film scenic places of southern California, particularly in the canyons of the Sierra Madre Mountains and on Santa Cruz Island, were the locations for the pictorially beautiful prologue which introduces the story of The Curse of Eve, the multiple-reel picture now under production by the Corona Cinema Company of Los Angeles. The prologue, which depicts the creation of the world and the incidents of the Garden of Eden, taken from the biblical narrative, is but a minor portion of the film. The makers of the picture spent nearly as much time in producing this introductory part of the film as they did on the story itself, which features Enid Markey as the modern Eve, the girl of the story. In order to secure the locations which would best represent the beauties of the Garden of Eden, the Corona Company, including General Manager Keerl, Director Frank Beal and the cameraman, William C. Thompson, made trips through a great deal of the mountainous region of the southern part of the state, as well as visiting most of the islands in the channel group off the coast of southern California.”
