Canadian-born British film personality Henry Edwards both directed and starred in Aylwin. Set in Wales, the film concerns Aylwin's (Edwards) romance with Winifred Wynne (Chrissie White). When Winifred's drunken father dies in a landslide, the poor girl becomes mentally unhinged. Aylwin tries his best to set things right, but is stymied by a lack of money. Based on the novel by Theodore Watts-Dunton, Aylwin is one of several silent films which co-starred Henry Edwards and his wife Chrissie White.
