Title:The Idol Dancer

Date: 1920
Type: Drama
Rating: 2 Stars 2/5
Colour: Black and White / Silent
Director: D W Griffth

American missionaries on a South Sea island come into conflict with a local girl and a beachcomber when trying to impose their ideas upon the natives. This is not the best of D W Griffth's films, not least because of its dubious ethical and racial overtones. Clarine Seymour gives a mixed performance, but it is her performance that carries the film.
