Cute Little Biograph Company Film With Mabel Normand
17 October 2012 | by (Orlando, United States) – See all my reviews

Two rivals, Dell Henderson and Edward Dillon buy an engagement ring for Mabel Normand. One rival is rich and the other poor. Mabel loves the poor guy. Somehow the rich guy gets the ring company where the poor guy bought the ring to repossess it. They literally send someone to take it off of poor Mabel's finger. Will Mabel now go with the rich guy when he shows up with his ring or will she be loyal to the man she loves? This was an early work by Mack Sennett. The camera-work is good with some interesting setups and the editing flows very nicely. For those expecting the chases of his later work, there is a chase here, but it only lasts for three seconds.

For cinephiles, I would definitely recommend it.
