One of the last great silents still stands as a magnificent entertainment. Gish, in possibly her best role, is an innocent Easterner who finds herself married to a rough cowpoke and raped by a married man in a bleak frontier town. Director Sjostrom has a splendid feel for landscape, and the drama--climaxing with a tumultuous desert storm--is intense yet fully believable. Based on the novel by Dorothy Scarborough.
