The White Sister
 

THE WHITE SISTER starring Lillian Gish, Ronald Colman, Gail Kane and Juliette La Violette. Directed by Henry King. The beautiful Angela Chiaromonte is disinherited and left homeless through the machinations of her cruel, jealous half-sister. With the help of her friend, Madame Bernard, she establishes a small school and re-unites with her sweetheart, the dashing captain Giovanni Severini. While on an expedition in Africa, Giovanni is attacked and believed dead prompting Angela, in her grief, to take her vows and become a nun. When Giovanni returns, Angela must choose between God and the man she loves

Shot on location in Italy and Algeria and lavishly produced, "The White Sister" is Lillian Gish's first starring role after leaving D.W. Griffith. It was produced by the same company and director who brought Richard Barthelmess (another Griffith alumni) lasting fame in "Tol'able David".

Presented with an original music score composed and performed by Stuart Oderman.
