The directorial genius of Maurice Tourneur and the ageless beauty of Marguerite Clark combined to make Prunella a winner all down the line. Based on a play by Granville Barker and Laurence Houseman, the film found Clark repeating her stage role as Prunella, an idealistic country girl who is swept off her feet by an itinerant actor. Following her sweetheart to the hinterlands, Prunella soon discovers that her dream lover is constitutionally unfaithful. But her broken heart is ultimately mended when her erstwhile sweetheart promises to settle down -- and means it. Tourneur's gift for exquisite pictorial compositions was complimented by the contributions of the director's frequent collaborator, art director Ben Carre.
