This film is so rare that no footage from it exists online!

In a far-off hamlet, a keen young woman feels obliged to forfeit true love in the name of family honor. Let maestro accompanist Ben Model’s live theater organ – combined with a rare print from the Library of Congress – whisk you back to the silent era during this once-in-a-lifetime viewing opportunity. Intro by Jeanine Basinger, Corwin-Fuller Professor of Film Studies.
