Linda, a tender, romantic girl, is forced by her brutal father to marry Decker, an elderly lumberman who quickly realizes that Linda is not happy with him and does everything he can to make her life easier. Linda falls in love with Dr. Randall but remains with her husband until a scheming woman steps in and claims to be Decker's first and legal wife. Linda then goes to the city to live with her former schoolteacher and again meets Dr. Randall, but must leave him to return north and care for Decker, who has been hurt in a lumbering accident. Learning that the woman claiming to be Decker's wife is a fraud, Linda gallantly sticks with her husband until he finally dies from his injuries. Linda and the good doctor are then free to find happiness with each other.Written by
Wonderful Find - 1920s Fashion in All Its Glory, Too!
Siskel Theater in Chicago is showcasing Women Directors this month - I was completely taken with the story, the acting and the filmmaking particularly - seemed so much more natural than other films of this era. The scenes set in "the big City" are breathtaking for the clothes the women are wearing - you couldn't ask for a better example of the styles of the day - particularly if you are a costumer looking for inspiration. Loved seeing Noah Berry as, while he SO resembles his brother, I've rarely seem in any film. A young Warner Baxter was delightful too. 73 minutes of a pretty compelling story, such as stories were on those days! Bravo Mrs. Reid!
