The Story of Enoch Arden

"Long lines of cliff breaking have left a chasm;
And in the chasm are foam and yellow sand; **
Here on this beach a hundred years ago,
Three children of three houses, Annie Lee,
The prettiest Little damsel in the port,
And Philip Ray, the miller's only son,
And Enoch Arden, a rough sailor lad, **
Played among the waste and lumber of the shore."

Thus began the friendship of these playmates, which grew stronger with the coming years.  When Enoch and Annie were married, Philip remained the loyal friend of both, even after the news came that Enoch was lost at sea.  For ten years Annie mourned her husband, then listened to Philip's pleading and wed him for her children's sake.  When Enoch finally returned -- for he had been shipwrecked upon a lonely island -- he too was loyal to his wife and friend and Annie never knew.  And a year later alone -- but not forgotten -- he passed to his reward.

ENOCH ARDEN

A MUTUAL MASTERPIECE

BASED ON THE FAMOUS POEM BY LORD ALFRED TENNYSON

Tears will rise from the heart and glistenin the eyes as you watch the succession of beautiful scenes in this wonderful motion picture.  Yet, happiness is the keynote in the great English poet's Ideal Story of Love and Friendship

The old fishing village where the happy incidents in this familiar old romance take place -- the curious dress and customs of that bygone period -- the splendid types of simple fisher folks -- the atmosphere of the narrative -- all are faithfully portrayed.  And the leading characters -- Annie and Philip and Enoch -- are true to your highest conceptions of them because they are acted by Players Whom You Know So Well

LILLIAN GISH     ALFRED PAGET     WALLACE REID

There is the sound of the sea in every scene of this sweetl-sad drama and its splendid appeal will reach the heart of every lover of the best in film productions.

Most of the Play is Pictured in the Open with the ocean and sky as the background, or the tropical palms that sheltered the castaway, Enoch Arden, on the lonely island, where he spent ten long, weary years eating his heart out in racking solutude.  There is a quaint eighteenth century street with an old mill in the distance -- but why attempt to describe one of the latest and best "Mutual Masterpictures" that no doubt you saw
