It’s based on the 1909 novel of the same name by Francis Marion Crawford. Angela Chiaromonte (Lillian Gish) and Captain Giovanni Severini (Ronald Colman) are deeply in love, but Angela’s wealthy father, Prince Chiaromonte, does not know this and arranges her marriage, without her knowledge, to the son of Count del Ferice. However, the prince dies in an accident. Jay Warren, Chicago’s foremost photoplay organist, will be providing accompaniment to bring all the color, excitement, and glamour of the silent film era back to life.
