Cast & Crew
Louis B. Foley
The names Tempest and Sunshine aptly point out the differences between two Southern sisters. After jilting her fiancé, Tempest decides to break the engagement between Sunshine and a wealthy planter and convinces her sister's former suitor to help her. Tempest's elaborate plan involves forging and stealing letters, but just when it seems about to work, the ex-suitor, made sick with guilt and remorse, confesses everything to Sunshine.
Although the Dixie Film Co. was based in Chicago, Tempest and Sunshine was filmed in Jacksonville, FL. J. Frank Hatch Enterprises sold Tempest and Sunshine on a state rights basis in 1919. Even though Motion Picture News called this a six-reeler, it was apparently a re-issue of the 1916 film, which was copyrighted at five reels.
