Lorna Doone is a 1922 American film version of Richard Doddridge Blackmore's novel of the same name.

Directed by French director Maurice Tourneur in the United States, the film starred Madge Bellamy and John Bowers.

This is one of many film adaptations of the novel. It was filmed twice before in 1912 in England for Clarendon, and in 1915 for the American Biograph Company.[1] Other later adaptations include 1934 and 1951 films and a 2001 television movie.



In 2001 a digital restoration of the film was financed by Georgia cinephile Jesse Sharp and released on DVD by Kino International. Japanese singer/songwriter Mari Iijima composed an all-new musical score for the film.[citation needed]
