Storyline

A grief stricken widowed man, devotes his life to caring and providing for his very young daughter. He quickly secures a job at a nearby pigeon farm. One day he runs into an old sweetheart, but he soon realizes he cannot support a wife and his child too, so he sacrifices his own happiness for his daughter. Years later his daughter returns from school a young woman. She promises her father that she will never leave him. Then one day a young man turns her fancy, and they are both smitten with each other. As they meet secretly, her father finds out and angrily confronts the young man. His daughter explains she is in love and they are going to get married. Heartbroken, the father leaves, not wanting to see them again. A year later, the daughter has a baby of her own. With her husband always busy, she becomes very lonely. Missing her father, she visits him and places the baby in his arms. Upon seeing his daughter and grandchild he is immediately restored with joy and happiness. Written by Pamela Short

All's well that ends well....
15 August 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is about the fifth D.W. Griffith short film I've seen recently and it doesn't compare as favorably with the others. Much of this is because there is some over-acting/over-gesticulating by one of the actors and it's odd Griffith didn't re-shoot the scenes. I say odd because usually the actors in his films behave much more naturally than what you see in most others of the era.

The story is about a man who dedicates his whole life to taking care of his daughter after his wife dies. He forsakes his own needs for her--and this is probably why he behaved so badly when his now grown daughter (Mary Pickford) decides to get married. Fortunately, this film illustrates that time heals all wounds or all's well that ends well or....

The bottom line is that the story is fair and Pickford and most of the rest act fine--but watch Dad (George Nichols) and see him have a seizure instead of act in a couple scenes!
