    • Hearts of Oak (1924)



      Information from IMDb

      Plot Summary
      Terry Dunniva, a retired sea-captain living in Marblehead, Massachusetts,
      adopts two children, Chrystal and Ned.
      As the girl grows to womanhood, Terry realizes his fatherly-love
      had grown to something stronger.
      He asks her to become his wife. Chrystal, who is in love with her foster-brother,
      consents rather than destroy Terry's happiness.
      On the day of their marriage, Ned returns from a long voyage
      with the intent of making Chrysal his wife.
      And, he, too, rather than destroy the happiness of his adopted-father,
      leaves to embark on an Artic voyage that might mean his death.
      When Terry learns of the sacrifice both Chrystal and Ned
      are making on behalf of his happiness,
      he takes Ned's place on the voyage and gets both to pledge
      that if he does not return, they will marry each other.

    • Re: John Ford- Hearts of Oak (1924)

      Hearts of Oak is is a 1924 drama film and alas,
      one of the many "lost" silent films of pantheon director John Ford.
      Filmed not long after Ford's epic western The Iron Horse,
      John Ford's brother Francis, at one time a major star/director in his own right,
      showed up in a minor role.
