Maurice Tourneur in Trilby


1915 NR

Through the power of hypnosis, the mesmerizing Svengali (Wilton Lackaye) puts the beautiful but desperate Trilby O'Farrell (Clara Kimball Young) in a trance and reinvents her as a talented singer. But Svengali's hold over the girl is so strong that she's oblivious to her own success -- even as she works tirelessly to perfect her talent. Maurice Tourneur directs this haunting silent-film classic based on the novel by George du Maurier.
