The French Revolution is the backdrop for Gish’s last film with Griffith, and one of her final collaborations with her sister Dorothy. Lillian plays the familiar role of sister’s keeper—in this case, she becomes separated from a blind Dorothy and must fight her way back to her sister as the political upheaval unravels and a spurned advance threatens to send Lillian to the guillotine. New York premiere of MoMA’s new 2009 preservation. Silent, with musical accompaniment by Stuart Oderman. Approx. 142 min.
