In a country town, Susie (Lillian Gish), innocent and big-hearted, quietly gives money to William Jenkins (Robert Harron), a man she secretly yearns for, so he can attend college. After he graduates, he returns and becomes the town's minister. However, he never realizes how Susie feels about him and ignores her in favor of Bettina Hopkins (Clarine Seymour), a wild and unfaithful girl who steals his heart. Susie must then find a way to show William that she has loved him all along.

Critic Reviews for True Heart Susie

  • The psychological subtlety of the silent cinema owes much to a complex visual grammar that D. W. Griffith employed to tell surprisingly old-fashioned stories.

    August 21, 2013 | Full Review…
  • One of D.W. Griffith's most beautiful films, a pastoral fable of a sort that no one could ever make again, because the sensitivity and spirit have vanished along with the landscape.

    August 19, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Griffith has handled the picture in the same masterly way that he usually has things done.

  • Once more, D. W. Griffith, ably assisted by [his cast and crew], has brought meaningful humanity to the screen, more nearly pure, less mixed with artificiality, than it has ever been in a motion picture play, except in other works of Mr. Griffith.

    March 25, 2006 | Full Review…
  • All it satisfied in us was our intelligence, our artistic conscience. Somehow that more vital motion picture target, our heart -- rather an impressionable, not to say sentimental heart, at that -- was never really struck.

    July 30, 2019 | Full Review…
  • An exceedingly old-fashioned, but quite appealing, silent romance, featuring one of Lillian Gish's finest performances.
