True Heart Susie

True Heart Susie is a 1919 American drama film directed by D. W. Griffith and starring Lillian Gish. A print of the film survives in the film archive of the British Film Institute.[1] The film has seen several VHS releases as well as a DVD issue.


True Heart Susie (Gish) secretly loves her neighbor, William Jenkins (Harron), but neither, it seems, can confess their feelings for each other. William eventually goes off to college. He returns, but, to Susie's disappointment, he marries a fast-living young woman named Bettina (Seymour). In the end, Bettina dies and William and Susie finally admit their love for each other.
