A Good Short Feature
1 August 2002 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This entertaining short feature has an interesting story set in the American Revolution, and it includes Mary Pickford in a small role. It has plenty of action, some suspense, and some lighter moments as well. The story starts when a young American soldier seeks the help of an ordinary family as he tries to deliver a crucial message, and then involves their plans to outwit the brutish Hessian mercenaries who are pursuing him. As one of the family's daughters, Pickford has only a small role, but she plays an amusing part in their scheme. As history, it's probably not to be taken too seriously, but it's good entertainment, and the story works pretty well.
