The last film that the great Lillian Gish made was when she was in her 90's ("The Whales of August"). She and Bette Davis were marvelous together. As she ended her career with this film, it also became my favorite of hers. The more mellow and genteel the film, the more I like it. Miss Gish was in many like that. God Bless Her!

Thanks, I moderate and Lillian Gish e-mail group and quote Lillian Gish's autobiography on my webpage. The Wind, and The Scarlet Letter as well, both directed by Victor Sjostrom, will always be TCM favorites http://www.geocities.com/lord02141/scottlord2.html
Great Silent Dramatic Star
Lillian Gish started in film in the early teens and rose quickly to stardom once she started working with DW Griffith. Gish was in both Intolerance and The Birth of a Nation and became a star. During the 20s her films were like La Boheme and The Scarlet Letter were eagerly awaited "event" films. The Wind still ranks as one of the all-time great silent films. Gish had a long career in films up through the late 80s. One of the greats.

I absoultley adore Lillian Gish in this movie. Although I couldn't hear her speak ,and it was in black and white you could still feel her emotion. Her facial expressions really showed and made her character even stronger. I also, adore that it was in black and white because that made it even more intimate.
