ROMOLA

Starring LILLIAN and DOROTHY GISH

Directed by Henry King

It runs approx. 118 minutes long with a theatrical organ music score!
In Renaissance Florence, Tito, a no-good young man pretending to be a scholar, wins the admiration of a blind man who has long looked for someone to finish his scholarly work. He has a beautiful daughter named Romola. Tito flirts with a peasant girl in the streets, and for fun goes through a mock marriage with her -- but she takes it seriously. Romola doesn't really love him, but marries him because her father wishes it. When the Medici are forced out, Tito joins the new government and rises to be chief magistrate. His evil actions earn him the hatred of Romola and of the people, and he is killed by his stepfather. Romola ends up with sculptor Carlo, who has always loved her.

Filmed on location in Italy, where director Henry King ruled over a huge set that covered 17 acres, Romola stars Lillian Gish in the title role. The daughter of a 15th-century Florentine aesthete, Romola becomes the bride of the caddish Tito Melema (William Powell). Using all the underhanded resources at his disposal, Melema finagles his way into the position of Chief Magistrate, taking every opportunity to abuse his powers. One of his most heinous acts is his betrayal of country girl Tessa (Dorothy Gish), who ends up drowning herself. Melema himself is consigned to a watery grave when the people revolt against his persecutions. This leaves Romola (who despite her title-character status has virtually nothing to do in the film other than stand around and look beautiful) free to marry artist Carlos Buccelini (Ronald Colman), who has loved her all along. The most spectacular setpiece in the film is Henry King's meticulous reconstruction of the execution of Savonarola (Herbert Grimwood). Romola was based on the novel by George Eliot.
