Storyline

A young girl looking for work, is hired by a farmer's wife to work as a maid. A smooth talking peddler comes by the farm, and flirts with the young maid. He gives the naive girl an engagement ring and promises to marry her. When the peddler runs up some gambling debts, he visits the maid again and tells her they cannot marry until he has enough money to pay off his debt. While the farmer and his wife are asleep, the maid foolishly steals their money. The peddler takes the money and leaves on a train to get out of town. Overcome with guilt, the young maid runs away from the farm. Meanwhile the peddler gets into a fight and is thrown off the train. The maid stumbles upon him by the railroad tracks. She finds the money on the peddler and returns it to the farm couple before they even knew it was missing. Written by Pamela Short

Arcadian Maid, An (1910)

*** (out of 4)

D.W. Griffith film about an out of work maid (Mary Pickford) who gets a job and soon starts getting hit up on by a playboy. This is fine with the maid until she learns the man is talking about her to his friends. Here's another Griffith film that's pro-woman and anti-man as the men in the movie are pretty cut and dry villains while the Pickford character is seen as an angel. There's nothing wrong with this as it adds to the story and Griffith certainly knows how to handle it.
