Product Description:

The silent film TOL'ABLE DAVID is widely considered one of the finest early U.S. action films. The film is a far cry from the hectic cutting and special effects of the modern blockbuster, but under Henry King's stellar direction it quickly and quietly presents the emotional elements of the form, centering on a young hero, David, who against all odds faces down an evil enemy to win respect and love. David, who idolizes his older brother, sees him struck down by the Hatburns, three criminal fugitives who have taken up residence in David's otherwise bucolic village. When David's father dies shortly thereafter, David must swear off revenge in order to support his widowed mother and younger siblings. David is shamed by his neighbors, who view his filial loyalty as cowardice, and he is unable to attract the desired attentions from his beloved, a Hatburn herself. But working for the U.S. Postal Service, David is soon poised to prove his courage, avenge his family, and win his love's heart.

Description by Image Entertainment:

Tol'able David is a magnificent film, carefully transferred from the best available elements, and starring the great Richard Barthelmess (Broken Blossoms) in the title role. This silent classic chronicles David's passage into adulthood as he confronts three crooks looking for trouble. A delightful gem from film's early years.

Plot Synopsis:

A simple young man defies three outlaws who make trouble in his placid Appalachian town.
