Beautiful and human
14 December 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

This is a beautiful four-reel film version of Tennyson's poem, which has been produced by William Cabanne and appears on the program of Mutual Masterpictures. Lillian Gish plays the sympathetic role of Annie, Alfred Paget that of Enoch, and Wallace Reid that of Philip. Special mention is due the appropriateness of the settings of the production. There must surely be little fault if any to be found with the picture in any way. Its development is quaint, and beautiful and human. The players are deserving of great credit, as is also the director. - The Moving Picture World, April 24, 1915
