The great director D.W. Griffith flexes his creative muscles and shows off his masterful storytelling prowess in this dynamic silent epic. Lillian Gish stars as the innocent, poverty-stricken country girl sent to affluent relatives in Boston by her mother. Lowell Sherman plays the smooth-talking scoundrel who seduces her into a sham marriage that leaves her pregnant and a social outcast. Following the death of her baby, her life goes into a tailspin until she finds shelter at the estate of a religious squire, played by Burr McIntosh.
