Linda was the final silent directorial effort of Mrs. Wallace Reid (formerly Dorothy Davenport). The title character, played by Helen Foster, is a young mountain girl forced into marriage with the much-older Decker (Noah Beery Sr.) Though outwardly a slovenly brute, Decker is actually a decent sort who will do anything to make his young bride happy. But Linda can't stand her husband, falling in love instead with handsome doctor Paul Randall (Warner Baxter). At long last realizing that her duty lies with her husband, Linda dutifully returns to Decker, remaining a good and faithful spouse until the old guy's death. Long presumed lost, Linda was restored in the early 1990s (albeit minus its original Vitaphone musical score) and made available to collectors by Grapevine Video.
