Guy Newall both starred in and co-directed the British Garden of Resurrection. The film details the trials and tribulations of half-caste Clarissa, played by Ivy Duke. After enduring tragedies and setbacks that would have killed a lesser person, Clarissa achieves a happy-ever-after denouement. The male sex doesn't come off very well in this one; in fact, except for the standardized ending, the film might have passed muster as a pioneering feminist tract. The Garden of Resurrection was based on a novel by E. Temple Thurston.
