Following the successful telecasts of Othello (1922) and The Eagle (1925), New York City's WJZ (Channel 7), began a weekly series of Sunday evening silent film feature presentations, shown more or less in their entirety, which aired intermittently for the next twelve months. This feature was initially broadcast Sunday 2 January 1949, and, like the rest of the series, aired simultaneously on sister stations WFIL (Channel 6) (Philadelphia) and freshly launched WAAM (Channel 13) (Baltimore), an innovation at the time; the following week's selection would be Young April (1926), the final entry in this particular series.

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.
