Description by

Susie, a plain young country girl, secretly loves a neighbor boy, William. She believes in him and sacrifices much of her own happiness to promote his own ambitions, all without his knowledge. Eventually he rises to a position of success and sophistication, and Susie realizes that she has through her own efforts raised him to a level where he is inaccessible to her.

Product Description:

In this silent romantic drama from the great D.W. Griffith (WAY DOWN EAST, THE BIRTH OF A NATION), an innocent, good hearted young woman (Lillian Gish) makes countless sacrifices to promote the fortunes of her ignorant love, William Jenkins (Robert Harron). For one thing, she finances his ecclesiastical education, though it means sending him off to college where she can't be with him. Of course he returns educated and worldly, ignoring her worse than ever, even choosing to marry another woman--"sophisticated" Bettina Hopkins (Clarine Seymour). Naturally stoic Susie never bothers to explain all she's done for him; she even hides Betty's extra-marital affairs from her beloved (and unbelievably stupid) William's eyes. Amid the pastoral splendor of their small town she prefers to suffer, and oh, how she suffers.

After she rescues another child from the orphanage during a fire, her luck changes and she is adopted by a wealthy family. But how long will it be before her hoodoo catches up to her' HOODOO ANN was Produced by D.W. Griffith under his pseudonym, "Granville Warwick."
