Marguerite Clarks's Fourth Film
13 January 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dolly Erskine, ( Marguerite Clark ) a coquettish young girl is the ward of an English estate owner. She must marry someone titled in order to acquire her inheritance. But Dolly seeing her sister's loveless marriage to Sir William Chetwynde, ( Arthur Hoops ) rebuffs her brother-in-law's attempt to find her a husband. Dolly has fallen in love with her riding master, Richard Murray, ( John Merkyl ) who happens to be the Earl of Basset, and is trying to escape a designing matrons plotting to have him marry their daughters. After hearing him gamble we will win her, the feisty Dolly decides to fool him. Meanwhile, her sister trying to escape her husband's brutality, has run off with Captain Cardiff for Gretna Green, an idyllic haven in northern Scotland where eloping couples traditionally go. Dolly and Richard follow to try and stop them, but when Sir William arrives, Dolly bravely protects her sister by telling him, Richard and her were eloping. Without realizing that according to Scottish law, her announcement immediately makes them married. She decides to divorce Richard, but finally tears up the separation papers, and Richard reveals his real identity.

Gretna Green was a silent romantic comedy based on a Broadway play and directed by Thomas N. Heffron and distributed through Paramount Pictures. It was Marguerite Clark's fourth film and is now sadly presumed lost.
