It was the basis for the 1927 film Barbed Wire directed by Rowland V. Lee. But it is more than a love story. It is a Parable, carrying an unmistakable message, an ostensible argument, that is directed against War as the first author of the racial hatred, the material ruin, the sorrow and suffering, the poverty and want, which are now threatening the world with destruction; that it is a plea for universal peace, for speedy and universal disarmament, as the only alternative to universal anarchy. Sir Thomas Henry Hall Caine (1853-1931) was a friend of Rossetti and wrote many successful novels largely set on the Isle of Man.Hide synopsis
