" Early Biograph With Young Mary Pickford "
19 November 2013 | by PamelaShortSee all my reviews

This early one reel Biograph drama has a very typical storyline for it's time, a young girl becoming involved with a crafty cad, in this case a gypsy. It opens with the enchanting scene of two pretty young sisters standing in a field of daisies, both hoping for romance to arrive. Soon enough it does for both sisters in the form of a womanizing gypsy and ends with their father being struck by the cad and the gypsy fleeing through the field of daisies with a mob of angry farmhands in hot pursuit. Mary Pickford and Gertrude Robinson portray the jilted sisters adequately in this fast moving drama, beautifully filmed on location and slickly directed and edited by D.W Griffith. While not a classic, still interesting for those curious in early silent cinema and a young Mary Pickford, who stands out with her unique naturalness.
