Tom Horne deeply loved pretty little Mabel Jarrett, and that his love was returned goes without saying. Tom's ebullient ambition is intensified by his great love for the girl, so he decides to go out west to fight for fame and fortune to be more worthy of her. After some time in the land of promise he succeeds in attaining the end for which he had striven and writes of his intention to return and claim her for his own. Meanwhile, Mabel's cousin Winnie has visited her and is to spend the summer months. At the receipt of Tom's letter, Mabel is in the seventh heaven of delight, when cruel fate plunges her into the depths of despair, for a horrible accident occurs. During the evening, while Mabel is in the act of lighting the lamp, it explodes, frightfully burning her face and head. It is conclusive that the poor girl will be disfigured for life. What a blow it is to her almost on the eve of Tom's return! They all try to cheer her, although fully realizing her sad plight. Winnie in ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Pickford's Third Film
31 December 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Having made her debut in 'The Violin Maker of Cremona' and followed it up with 'The Lonely Villa', Mary Pickford went on to appear in this short film which I feel didn't do much for her. It's a pity that she didn't become Canada's sweetheart rather than America's.
