Stark Love is a 1927 silent film directed by Karl Brown and starring Helen Mundy, Forrest James and Reb Grogan. This is a 35mm print from MoMA and features live music by Nathan Shirley. Filmed on location in western North Carolina with a largely amateur cast, Stark Love provides a documentary window into rural life of a century ago. A rough mountain man works his wife to death and compels a neighbor girl to take her place, while his son seethes with outrage and desire.
