The story opens with a pretty love scene between the Lieutenant and his betrothed, Kate Stanley. Hammond is ordered to join his regiment in Cuba and Kate is heartbroken. He tells her they must part, and the girl decides to be brave. She exacts from him a promise that he will be true to her, and not indulge in any flirtations with the dark-eyed senoritas she has been told lure men from their vows of constancy in the land of flowers. Hammond is only too willing to swear eternal constancy. Kate places in his watch case a photograph of herself, kisses her manly soldier, and the leave-taking is very affectionate. The scene reverts to Cuba, Lieutenant Hammond arrives, and is impressed with the country. Kate, having relatives in Havana, receives an invitation to pay them a visit and eagerly accepts, thinking she will meet her lover. She is apprised of his arrival at Havana, and, knowing the predilection of soldiers to flirt, resolves to investigate. Attired in mantilla and Spanish costume, ...

Mary Pickford's Cuban Roots
5 January 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Spanish immigrant Mary Pickford (as Kate) shares a kiss with her Floridian sweetheart Owen Moore, then learns his ship is being sent to Cuba. Ms. Pickford is despondent, but Mr. Moore promises to be faithful. A week later, Pickford receives an invitation to attend a house party, given by her Cuban uncle. So, Pickford decides to test Moore's love. She dresses up as a native Spanish Senorita, and flirts mercilessly with Moore. He doesn't recognize his American sweetheart, and succumbs to Pickford's seduction. Furious, Pickford rebuffs her horny boyfriend. When he returns to Florida, Pickford has "a little surprise" for her roving man! - "Artful Kate" is a cute, but not artful, film for the newly wed Moore and Pickford. Hopefully, "Kate" will advise her sweetheart to have his eyes examined.
