I'm astonished by how good the promo trailers are for Turner Classic Movies. The latest, Lonesome Tears, is just phenomenal. If people at TCM read this forum then congratulations on a stunning video.

If you watch TCM you can't miss the trailer but my question has to do with a clip in the montage itself. Between the shot of a ruby-red sky showing a woman running away from the camera and a figure standing next to her and some shots of a pilgrim woman (I assume Priscilla Alden) looking through a window into the rain, there's a shot of a stunning actress who looks like Hedy Lamarr but I can't be sure. It appears to be a silent movie but since most of the shots in the montage are done in a sepia-like tint it's hard to tell. The woman is crying, wearing a simple A-line dress and slowly raises her head to look at the camera. I want to know what film that clip is from.

I know this isn't much to go by but I think I've fallen in love and would very much like to see the movie that shot is in. Whoever that woman is, she can act!

Thanks!
