A Film by Terry Sanders
Narrated by Eva Marie Saint
Called “the first lady of the silent screen,” Lillian Gish was the archetypal silent film heroine — the delicate damsel in distress, stranded on a swift-moving ice floe, cowering before a sadistic brute. The film showcases generous footage of her most memorable performances.
In this Emmy-award winning documentary, the celebrated actress reflects on her life and work spanning the 20th century, particularly her years as D.W. Griffith’s favorite leading lady and collaborator.
