The Ocean Waif / '49-'17: Double Feature

1916 Rated NR 1hr 44m

Two movies from the silent era, Alice Guy's Ocean Waif (1916) and Ruth Ann Baldwin's '49-'17 (1917), display the filmmaking prowess of groundbreaking female directors. In Ocean Waif, a young woman (Doris Kenyon) who's known a life of abuse at the hands of her adoptive father finds comfort with a famous writer. History repeats itself in '49-'17, in which a judge's recollection of the Gold Rush paves the way for a present-day discovery of gold.
