Love and war--classic ingredients of the romantic epic--provide the conflict for this story of the strong-willed Nova Scotian Evangeline, who refuses the proposal of one respectable man because she loves another. When war erupts, the people of her village are displaced; her search for her lost love takes her to Louisiana and then to a Philadelphia almshouse. An impassioned adaptation of the poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Evangeline showcases del Rio sensationally suffering in one of her finest roles. 1929, U.S., B/W with color tinting, 35mm, 87 minutes.
