Storyline

In a quaint fishing village we see the childhood sweethearts, Bill and Mary, a boy and girl of about ten or eleven years. Constant companions, they hold for each other a regard beyond their understanding. Ten years roll by, and the boy, now a young man, with a ring approaches the girl and the sweethearts of childhood now renew their vows. They are both very happy until fate interferes, it seems, to test the girl's sincerity. Bill while strolling on the shore, which to him since the betrothal is a Utopia, espies a raft with an object on it that looks like a human being, far out at sea.

Little Mary Pickford, the Two-Timing Gal
25 June 2009 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Mary has just gotten engaged to sailor Henry Walthall when along comes shipwrecked Edward Dillon, whom Mary fancies, but Dillon leaves because Walthall saved him and gave him a drink. But Walthall doesn't realize this and tries to drown him, to everyone's regret.

Mary plays a lusty wench in this one, walking around with her shoulders held back, throwing glances over her shoulder and I can't quite bring myself to believe this performance, since it is sweet little Mary Pickford, but she does her usual fine job in the interior scenes.

Interestingly enough, while most of Griffith's films shot at the seashore are quite beautiful, this one is shot among shacks and battered pilings, showing off the rough and strong emotions of the individuals concerned.
