Synopsis by Perry Seibert
The Enchanted Cottage stars Richard Barthelmess as Oliver, a physically and emotionally wounded World War I veteran who comes home to a fiancée who promptly leaves him. Licking his wounds in solitude, he meets a young woman named Laura (May McAvoy). They fall in love and agree to marry, but unexpected and magical events occur inside The Enchanted Cottage where they have agreed to spend their wedding night. The film was based on a 1921 play by Arthur Wing Pinero. Although no prints of this silent film are believed to exist, it was remade in 1945 with Robert Young and Dorothy McGuire.
