Filmsite Greatest Tearjerkers Scenes/Movie Moments (318 movies items)

"The spiritually affecting, melodramatic performance of Lillian Gish as Anna Moore, including the scene of the young, innocent country girl's ecstatic reaction to a marriage proposal, soon followed by the scene in which her playboy "husband" Lennox Sanderson (Lowell Sherman) revealed that her marriage was only a mock ceremony; the sequence in which Anna baptized her sick, newborn baby just before it died in her arms; also the innocent love scene on the grass next to the river between Anna and Dav"

Filmsite's Greatest Chase Scenes in Film History (83 movies items)

"This film was memorable for the last minute, climactic scene in which David Bartlett (Richard Barthelmess) chased after cast-out love interest Anna Moore (Lillian Gish) who had fled into a blinding snowstorm. She fainted on one of the ice floes in the midst of an icy river, with her hand trailing into the freezing water. As the ice thawed the next morning and broke apart ("the great ice-break"), her lifeless form was caught unconscious on moving ice-floes and was swept downstream toward a precip"

Filmsite's 100 Greatest Film Scenes (102 movies items)

"The most stunning and realistic sequence ever filmed was completely real and extremely dangerous in its finale. This is the scene of Anna Moore's (Lillian Gish) daring, last-second rescue from a moving ice floe. The young woman is ejected from the rural Bartlett home during a raging blizzard when her secret past (an unmarried pregnancy) is revealed. Delirious from the cold and blinded by the snow, she falls down and faints on a slab of ice floe in the midst of an icy river. Lying on the ice blo"
