Murnau’s original silent version. The story of a boy who marries an unwanted woman. The last of the great silent romantic melodramas and the only work of Mary Duncan that survives in complete form. Acclaimed by film historian Robert Klepper as "an overlooked masterpiece not to be missed."
Young Lem Tustine (Charles Farrell) goes to Chicago to sell his family’s wheat crop, there he meets and falls in love with waitress Kate (Mary Duncan). They are married and return to Lem’s family farm together. But the new couple has several challenges to over come including Lem’s father who rejects Kate, believing she married his son for money.
