Storyline

Lillian Gish is the daughter of a rich Italian count who is killed in a fall from his horse. Though Lillian stands to inherit a large estate, her older half-sister burns the will and thus inherits the property herself, throwing Lillian into poverty. Fortunately, she is engaged to marry the dashing officer Ronald Coleman, but he is captured by Arabs on an expedition to Africa. Dedicating her life to his memory, Lillian becomes a nun, unaware that her lover has escaped his captors and returning to Italy! The climax takes place against a backdrop of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Written by Ed Lengel <egl2r@faraday.clas.virginia.edu>

User Reviews

Beware of video version.
7 June 1999 | by (New York, USA) – See all my reviews

The video version now available is a totally inadequate representation of a beautiful film, with gorgeous photography. Furthermore, it is severely cut, missing important scenes that show Lillian Gish at her most inventive. Hopefully, someone will come up with a better source for a future release.
