Edwin Carewe in Evangeline


1929 NR

Mexican movie actress Dolores del Rio stars as the titular heroine, Evangeline, in this mostly silent classic with English subtitles, based on a narrative poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. When her would-be husband (Roland Drew) is deported, Evangeline embarks on an epic journey to find him. Along the way, however, she encounters harsh conditions that ultimately lead her to heartbreaking tragedy.
