Description by OLDIES.com:
In an almost mythical American arcadia, Lillian Gish portrays a pure, prim girl who so loves her childhood sweetheart (Griffith's most charming boyish hero, Robert Harron) that she sells the family cow to anonymously finance his higher education, only to lose him to a more "modern" woman (Clarine Seymour) when he comes home. Miss Gish's performance is among her best, her face what Gunning calls a "battleground of emotions, staging complete and progressive dramas of realization, recognition and despair."
As a bonus feature we offer Hoodoo Ann(February 1916). This light comedy is Griffith-supervised and scripted (using the pseudonym Granville Warwick), although the actual direction is by Lloyd Ingraham. Mae Marsh is paired with Robert Harron; the actors had been often partnered since Biograph days, were concurrently in the modern story of Intolerance and continued to play leads together until Miss Marsh left the company at the end of 1916. Although the plot is a tangle of unlikely coincidence, the performers make it work, and "it is filled with those little touches for which Fine Arts pictures are famous," in the words of an original review.
HOODOO ANN: A young, unfortunate girl in an orphanage is told by the Black Cindy, the cook, that she is "hoodooed" -- doomed to bad luck! 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."
