(1928, Sjöström) Shy Virginian Lillian Gish travels West, where she’s taunted by a jealous woman, wooed by an insentient field hand, victimized by a lecherous rogue and tormented by the demonic tempest that relentlessly besieges her tiny cabin. Sjöström’s American masterpiece reaches the expressive heights of silent drama. 35mm print courtesy Museum of Modern Art.
