theloudestvoice: Marie Doro as Daphne in The Wood Nymph, 1916

Summary:
“Daphne, raised in the redwood forests of California by her reclusive mother, has never seen a man.  Having learned of the Greek gods, Daphne mistakes the first man she sees, a hunter named William Jones, for Apollo.  Another young man, Fred Arnold, also stumbles upon Daphne, and the two men become friendly rivals for her attentions.
When tramps set the forest afire, William fails in his attempt to rescue Daphne, who is found by Fred when she wanders near the men’s camp.  Fred’s father, David Arnold, finds and saves Daphne’s mother, only to discover that she is his long-departed wife and that Daphne and Fred are brother and sister.  Husband and wife are reconciled, and William and Daphne are united.”
