Nomads of the North (1920)

US 109m, B&W, Silent
Director: David Hartford; Cast: Betty Blythe, Lon Chaney, Lewis Stone, Melbourne MacDowell

Nomads of the North is a melodrama about Nanette, a young woman who is waiting for her long overdue betrothed to return to the Hudson’s Bay Trading post where her and her sick father are living. In a rare situation where Chaney is the romantic lead, we eventually follow his character Raoul along with Nanette who become wanted by the North West Mounted Police. Though primarily a love story, Nomads is also an ode to the wilderness and the wildlife of the “Yukon” (Klaus Ming April 2017).
