  • The Wind

    1928. USA. Directed by Victor Sjöström. Screenplay by Frances Marion, based on the novel by Dorothy Scarborough. With Lillian Gish, Lars Hanson. Letty is a naïf who sets out from Virginia to begin a new life in Texas. Unaccustomed to hardship, the young Southern belle is tested by the inhospitable Texas plains. Sjöström imbues a windstorm with the crushing power of a troubled conscience after Letty kills a man in a formidable act of self-defense. Silent, with Vitaphone music and sound effects. 72 min.
