Nineteen-year-old British actress Nora Swinburne was already a stage star of seven years' standing when she appeared in the 1921 silent film Autumn of Pride. Swinburne plays a young farm girl who is in danger of losing her house in a foreclosure case. The man holding the mortgage is taciturn country squire Cecil Morton York. To save her from eviction, York's son David Hawthorne buys the farm from his father-but doesn't tell him why until the wedding bells peal. Autumn of Pride was adapted from a novel by E. Newton Bungey.
