Storyline

Twenty-year-old Nora Marsh has lived all her sheltered life in the confines of her family's home in London. But, suddenly, seemingly-secure walls come crushing down and Nora loses her parents and goes from rich to destitute. She travels to the only safe haven she knows about, the Canadian farm of her brother Ed. There she meets Frank Taylor, working for her brother as a farm-hand in an effort to overcome his own monetary loss the preceding winter. Nora quarrels with Ed's wife, "Gertie", and she asks Frank to take her away. And just as it appears the newly-weds are about to make a life of their own on his farm, tragedy strikes.

Maugham Melodrama Becomes Good Meighan Potboiler
28 April 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Mona Palmer's aunt in London has died, leaving her penniless. She goes to live with her brother on his wheat farm in Alberta, but quarrels with his wife, Dale Fuller -- best remembered for her appearance in numerous von Stroheim films. In a snit she marries Thomas Meighan; this does not turn out well.

Somerset Maugham's play had been filmed nine years earlier as THE LAND OF PROMISE. This remake is very well handled by director William Beaudine who, at this stage, was a very competent director-for-hire. Cinematographer Alvin Wyckoff delights in filming the horizon of the Alberta prairie and offers Millais-like views of the farmers at their labors. In addition, Charles Winninger has a substantial role. The next year he would begin his two-year run on Broadway as Captain Andy in SHOWBOAT and spend the rest of his film and TV career as a starring character actor.

Although this movie is not a classic, it is a very competently handled film. For those who are looking for a good drama starring the always interesting Thomas Meighan and some top production values, this should fit the bill.
