1922 Classic Film
19 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Love to look at old films way before my time and especially this film which was made up of mostly still photos and about one-third of the film on tape. Fanny Midgley gives a great performance with Rudolph Valentino who captures his heart and Valentino does everything in his power to bring her to the altar, but Fanny is not convinced because of the color of his skin being from India. Fanny reads in a book that skin color should not make a difference if you are in love and Fanny discovers she changes her mind and her way of thinking. This film will take you to India, Connecticut and some people are able to foretell about the future. If you like very old films, this is a great 1922 Classic. Enjoy
