Anna Christie (1923)
Chris (George F. Marion) is the veteran sailor who sends his daughter Anna Christie (Blanche Sweet) to Minnesota to keep her from marrying a seafarer in this story taken from Eugene O'Neil's play. She soon runs away to Chicago to escape being abused. Anna becomes a prostitute and eventually returns to the seaport town where she grew up. Her father's worst fears are realized when she falls in love with a sailor (William Russell). Anna tearfully confesses her sordid past to her father and the man she loves in this classic drama. Playwright O'Neil was said to have favored this film version over any that was produced for the big screen. Chester Conklin, Eugenie Besserer, Ralph Yearsley, and George Siegmann co-star with Victor Potel and Fred Kohler. … More
