Dawn (1919) -- Unknown ?
2 July 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

As the sad result of falling out of a tree when he was a child, artist Keith Burton (Robert Gordon) gradually starts to go blind. Having earlier heard his sweetheart, lovely heiress Dorothy Parkman (Sylvia Breamer), remark that she finds blind people disgusting, Keith becomes depressed and refuses her attentions. When an operation by Dorothy's stepfather (George Pauncefort), an eye surgeon, fails, Dorothy, under an assumed name, nurses Keith and teaches him to read and write until he discovers the ruse and, accusing her of pitying him, demands that she leave. On the verge of suicide, Keith is saved by his housekeeper and later finds value in helping neighbour John McGuire (Eddie Dunn), blinded while fighting in France. Keith soon suffers from hearing gossip linking Dorothy and his own father, but when he finds that they had been meeting to plan the construction of a training school for blind soldiers of which he will be the superintendent, he and Dorothy happily marry.

This 1919 drama was based on the novel, Dawn by Eleanor H. Porter. Produced by J. Stuart Blackton Feature Pictures and distributed by Pathé Exchange, sadly the status of this silent film is listed as unknown.
