True Heart Susie

462. TRUE HEART SUSIE (1919-USA). With LILLIAN Gish. Directed by D.W. Griffith, “Is Real Life Interesting? Do men look for a true heart in Women? To women waiting for the love that never comes, this story is dedicated.” Thus begins a story of a “plain” girl down on the farm and her love William. Sacrificing her cow (and more) to send him to college, he repays her kindness by falling for a wicked city woman. A simple and moving film of the romance and innocence that vanished with the World War. Told by Griffith with skill and sympathy. Silent film with music score, correct projection speed. 93 minutes.
