First of three versions of the classic tear jerker
This is the first of three versions of this classic romance - the second version (the talkie with Norma Shearer and Fredric March) is the best. There is also a musical version with Jeanette McDonald.
Here Norma Talmadge plays the Irish girl who wants to wed the son of the man who killed her uncle's fiancee on their wedding night. Family feuds battle true love. Copies of this film exist in two archives: the Library of Congress and the Nederlands Filmmuseum.
