A clip from Torrent
Torrent (1926) is an American silent romantic drama film directed by an uncredited Monta Bell, based on a novel by Vicente Blasco Ibáñez, and released on February 21, 1926.
Torrent was the first American film starring Swedish actress Greta Garbo. The film also starred Ricardo Cortez as the son of a domineering mother, played by Martha Mattox.
The title refers to a flood that occurs in the small town where most of the action takes place, which draws the two romantic leading characters closer together. — Wikipedia
