Tragedy of the Cornish Coast (1912) | BFI National Archive

British Film Institute


Fa parte degli Orphan Works del British Film Institute
Durata: 12 min.
Oversized characters populate this drama about a jealous fisherman who kidnaps a local girl when she falls in love with a travelling artist. A lifeboat team - arguably the real heroes of the hour - is corralled in attempt to make the rescue. B&C| the London-based producers of the picture| were well-regarded at the time for both feature films and documentary-style items. If this all looks a little melodramatic at times| it's worth considering that the stars of silent dramas would often have to compensate for a lack of sound with exaggerative acting - as perfectly evidenced by the mad histrionics of the jealous fisherman. They were also likely to have come from backgrounds in the theatre| which is now viewed as an altogether different acting platform. This video is part of the Orphan Works collection.
