Storyline

Lorna is a young noble girl who meets a young farmer boy named John Ridd. They immediately become infatuated with each other, but Lorna is kidnapped by the Doones, a group of bandits, and she is taken back to their village and raised as one of them. She is protected from the others by Sir Ensor Doone, the group's leader, because he has grown attached to her. After many years he becomes very ill and an upstart named Carver decides that he wants Lorna as his wife. Sir Ensor is powerless to protect her, so she must contact John to rescue her.

good music by Iijima
2 April 2005 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

An excellent silent film.

I like the modern music score on the version shown on TCM in March 2005. It was composed by Mari Iijima (if you're going to bad-mouth a composer, you ought to spell their name correctly...), and has nice Philip Glass-like qualities. I love modern music scores for old silent films generally (for instance, the Alloy Orchestra's work).

The film has some great cinematography, and it's worth seeing just for that. The shots of the water in several places, the beach where Lorna is kidnapped, and of mad villagers chasing on horseback are really excellent, with great texture and lighting.

Shockingly silly, abrupt ending.
