Fun Size Review: Lorna Doone (1922)

lorna doone

A classic tale of romance and revenge set in Restoration Scotland. Sumptuously directed by Maurice Tourneur and starring the popular Madge Bellamy and John Bowers, the story manages to both drag and move too quickly. It’s gorgeous to look at but ultimately a bit of a bore. Worth seeing for the cinematography. And no, cookies do not figure into the plot at any point.

Chocolate Chip Shortbread. The lily is thoroughly gilded, painted and otherwise over-buttered.
