The world-famous ballerina/choreographer Anna Pavlova plays Fenella, a mute fisher-girl who gets tangled up with a Spanish nobleman during the Spanish occupation of Naples in the mid-17th century. The tryst is ill-fated and, aided by the oppression of Neapolitan people, a revolution is incited. See why director Lois Weber became the highest-paid filmmaker in the world during her time. The Dumb Girl of Portici has been restored by the Library of Congress and An Affair with Film.
