88 minutes · 1928

A silent masterpiece (1928) by Swedish pioneer Victor Sjostrom, made during a brief tenure at MGM. Lillian Gish is a Virginia farm girl, brought to Texas and forced to marry a brutish cowboy (Lars Hanson). Sjostrom finds a perfect image for Gish's frustration and discontent in the prairie wind of the title. His strange and effective style might be best described as pastoral expressionism.
