Adonese is returning home from seeing the woman he is courting, and he is driving around a corner when his car accidentally brushes against the tramp 'Faithful' and knocks him over. Feeling sorry for him, Adonese helps him up and buys him a new suit of clothes. The naively innocent Faithful reads too much into this gesture, and he begins to follow his benefactor everywhere, expecting to receive future gifts. Soon Adonese becomes frustrated, and he looks for a way to free himself from Faithful's constant presence. Written by Snow Leopard

Mack Sennett is Faithful
5 November 2007 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Arthur Johnson (as Adonese) is driving home after a date when he sideswipes simple-minded pedestrian Mack Sennett (as Faithful). Mr. Johnson feels awful, and takes the shaken, but unwounded, tramp out shopping. Mr. Sennett is so taken with Johnson's generosity, he attaches himself to his handsome new friend. At first, Johnson feels guilty; and, he lets Sennett hang around. Eventually, Johnson grows tired of having the adoring Sennett play Siamese twin, and throws the bum out. It doesn't last, however, as "Faithful" Sennett returns with a flower for his benefactor. Poor Johnson can't even spend time alone with his fiancée Florence Barker; understandably, she doesn't want to share her beau with his new companion…

Sennett's comic pathos makes this a very effective film; this time, he plays extraordinarily well with director D.W. Griffith, and his ideal leading man, Johnson. Sennett is especially sweet when he brings Johnson a flower; he is too simple-minded to mind being roughed up by Johnson. Although he is annoying, Sennett's "Faithful" elicits much sympathy. This is also a very nicely paced film, with a pleasant balance of comedy, drama, and suspense. As a bonus, look for a generous amount of early Hollywood location footage (around Biograph's Pico studio).
