Storyline

Ramona is a little orphan of the great Spanish household of Moreno. Alessandro, the Indian, arrives at the Camulos ranch with his sheep-shearers, showing his first meeting with Ramona. There is at once a feeling of interest noticeable between them which ripens into love. This Senora Moreno, her foster mother, endeavors to crush, with poor success, until she forces a separation by exiling Alessandro from the ranch. He goes back to his native village to find the white men devastating the place and scattering his people. The Senora, meanwhile, has told Ramona that she herself has Indian blood, which induces her to renounce her present world and go to Alessandro. They are married and he finds still a little shelter left from the wreckage. Here they live until the whites again appear and drive them off, claiming the land. From place to place they journey, only to be driven further until finally death comes to Alessandro just as aid comes in the person of Felipe, the Senora's son, who takes...

Mary Pickford stars in early version of "Ramona"...
5 May 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Except for some nice visual touches in the B&W outdoor photography, this RAMONA from D.W. Griffith is easily dismissed as the primitive work that it obviously is.

Certainly MARY PICKFORD is nobody's idea of a Spanish girl but here she has a black wig and tries to look the role rather than the fair-haired image we usually have of her. Her acting style, as so often in these silents, is terribly over-the-top by today's standards and so are most of the others in the cast, particularly HENRY B. WALTHALL as her Indian lover.

The story is compressed into two reels, which is probably just as well considering the limitations imposed on it by silent screen techniques and title cards that attempt to tell too much in too little time.

It's all over before it begins. A time capsule of early attempts to create feature films.
