  • Orphans in the Storm-Favorite

    This is my favorite of limited silent movies I have seen because of D.W. and Lillian Gish and the music score for this film. Combined together and I think you have a masterpiece.

    The last great silent film from D.W. Griffith. Also the last film he made with the Gish sisters, both of whom are great as abused sisters, Schildkraut gives an underrated performance. Overlong & the story has a few faults, but it's scope & intimacy are superb. A great film from one of cinema's earliest pioneer's. I give it a 3.5/5.

    Excellent silent film, a very sweet drama with superb performances from real life sisters Dorothy and Lillian Gish. Amazingly done, very touching. Well directed. A piece of cinematic history.

    I am a new fan of the silent genre-thanks to TCM's "Silent Sunday Nights" which introduced me to this gem! I love the Gish sisters anyway, but this film shows them at their best I believe. It's touching to see the genuine love they express for each other, and they show so warmly the kidding around that siblings do. The final scene when they are arm in arm is so fitting for their final Griffith movie. This is the film that also introduced me to Joseph Schildkraut. I fell in love with him instantly, not only because of his astonishing handsomeness, but more so for his terrific acting ability. I believed that he was the kindhearted Chevalier, and wished that I weren't born so late-how I would have loved to meet him! This is not a perfect film- no film is- but for the genre I think it's one the best! Thank you TCM for bringing it to my awareness. Keep up the great work!
