Just purchased and watched this movie. Unfortunately, Brooke's not in it as much as I was led to believe, but in the end, the movie was worth watching for far more than just the few glimpses of Brooke it offered.

In truth, history tells us that Mabel Vernon was way more active in the suffragist movement than Brooke got to portray in this film, but realistically, if the film had covered the entire movement, it would have been ten hours long. I was glad to see Brooke as much as I did, gladder still to own this movie.

This happened in 1920, which - historically speaking - wasn't all that darned long ago. ALL women need to be proud of what these women did for us. We take voting for granted; they were falsely arrested and imprisoned and went through hell before they got to vote. Ah MAZE ing.

I think it's my favourite piece she's been in, as far as the piece as a whole. It gave me shivers and made me really appreciate my situation in life. I also loved some of the scenes she was in--I seem to remember one of her emotionally clutching the shirt of her dear friend and leader. That scene almost made me cry.

I love that film. It has been added to one of my favourites. Glad you liked it!
