Overview

Alice in Wonderland is frequently cited as the film that "discovered" winsome 1930s ingenue Charlotte Henry, yet here she is, playing the title character in the backwoods drama Lena Rivers. Based on a popular novel by Mary J. Holmes, the film concentrates on Lena's misadventures when her fisherman grandpa is lost at sea and she is sent to live with her wealthy Kentucky relatives. Shunned by her pretentious aunt (Betty Blythe) and obnoxious cousin (Joyce Compton), Lena enjoys a sudden change of status when it is learned that her real father is the family's aristocratic neighbor (James Kirkwood). As frosting on the cake, our heroine falls in love with Durrie (Morgan Galloway), the neighbor's handsome young ward. A previous version of Lena Rivers was filmed in 1925.
