Storyline

In the Kingdom of Never-Never Land there live a great Lord and Lady, each presiding over their own domain. This great Lord goes for a stroll through his estate and coming to the border of his own land he is struck by the entrancing beauty of the contiguous estate, so like his own, that the inclination to intrude is irresistible. His peregrination is halted by the appearance of the great Lady, who is indeed as fair as the flowers that clothe her land. He introduces himself and invites her to stroll with him in his gardens. She is in like manner entranced by the beauty of his possessions. How alike in beauty are they; a veritable fairyland. If they were only one, for it seems they should be. This thought is mutual, and the Lord proposes a way, a marriage, and so a betrothal of convenience ensues. They know nothing of love and so are content in the anticipation of being Lord and Lady of all Never-Never Land. Little do they dream of the subtle workings of fate, which is, of course, the ...

The sociological questions involved
19 May 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

"What is love?" may well he asked after seeing this picture. Yet one might be disposed to agree with the turn affairs finally took. Whether it was intended as a species of criticism of marriages of convenience, or whether it worked out that way in the telling, is a question which sets one pondering. It would seem perfectly natural for the lord and lady to wed. Such marriages of convenience have been consummated since the dawn of history. The gardener and lacemaker but followed the example of others better situated than themselves. Many have done the same thing before under similar circumstances. But here fate, or some other equally perverse influence, intervenes and both the lord and lady fall in love, but not with each other. Eventually the picture works out for the best good of all. The chief interest in this picture is in the sociological questions involved, and the long vista of speculation which opens ahead of one as the actors tell their story. - The Moving Picture World, May 21, 1910
