Lillian Gish is a Virginia belle who moves to Texas and slowly begins to lose her mind due to, you guessed it, the incessant wind storms, not to mention the loves, lusts and jealousies of the local residents.
Gish delivers the finest performance of her career as a woman whose fragile sanity is under constant attack. Lars Hanson is equally stunning as her cowpoke husband who is much, much smarter and more perceptive than he looks..
Moody, gripping, suspenseful, it uses the full range of the silent film language. See at all costs.
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.Gish shoots the man who attacks her and loses her grasp of reality. However, Hanson shows up in time to save her sanity and they enjoy a happy ending. Or do they?
If it were a dessert it would be: Flourless Chocolate Cake. Pure ingredients, intense flavor, a dark dessert for grown-ups. And my favorite.
Availability: This film has not been released on DVD in the USA, only on VHS.
