Crop And Save
Lorna Doone (1922)
I Love the Iijima Score
I watched this movie for the first time recently. I love it and watched it again and again. For the record, I find the score very appropriate. The score is performed by a strings orchestra. The strings seem to fit the period of the movie very well, like the score could have been written in the 1600s. If that is annoying some people, oh well.
I found the production values very impressive for a movie filmed in the early 20s.
John Bowers is a treasure. What a fine actor he was. He was a natural actor who could easily project his emotions without over-emoting. Unfortunately, not too many of his films have survived. Madge Bellamy did a credible portrayal of a sweet and innocent young girl. In my reading up on her, she really did a very good "acting" job.
There was a glaring continuity error at the end of the movie. John left the church to go after Carver in his wedding suit, arrived at Doone Gate in his work clothes, and caught up to him now wearing his wedding suit again.
