Lord Browning and Cinderella (1912)
- Summaries (1)
Everything is in anticipation at the home of the widow Gibson. Her two daughters are anxious to make an impression with Lord Browning. Her step-daughter, Cinderella, is carefully kept in the background. While they are waiting, a storm arises and Lord Browning is overtaken by it. He seeks shelter in a fisherman's hut and learns of the Gibson family from the old fisherman. Mrs. Gibson and her two daughters and step-daughter, are caught in the same storm and they also take refuge in the fisherman's hut. Lord Browning, seeing them approaching, disguises himself in fisherman's clothes. The mother and her daughters enter very haughtily, and not recognizing him, are very patronizing and seem to be contaminated by having to accept the hospitality of the hut. Not so with Cinderella. She is a friend of the old fisherman, treats him very kindly and enters into conversation with Lord Browning. The next day, Browning, dressed as the fisherman, comes to Mrs. Gibson's to sell fish. He is harshly dismissed and told to go to the basement door. He speaks to Cinderella, and she kindly directs him and is very friendly with him. Lord Browning has made up his mind to reveal himself. He returns to the fisherman's home, changes his clothing and in his machine, visits the Gibsons. They receive him very graciously and when he asks for Cinderella, they reluctantly call her and superciliously introduce her. Lord Browning calls frequently after that and he soon announces his engagement to Cinderella. Her stepmother and sisters are so chagrined it is an ordeal for them to congratulate her. Their first thought and pleasure after announcing their engagement is to hurry to their old friend, the fisherman, to tell him the good news, which he joyfully receives and approves with his blessing.
