Storyline

The story opens in the office of an oil company. The president received a letter from a friend notifying him there is oil in the town of Glory. He forms a dummy railroad company and sends a representative to Glory to get rights to the property by promising that the dummy company will establish a station at Glory. While getting the rights to the property, the oil representative goes through what he supposes a fake marriage with the postmistress of the village. Time passes and the postmistress leaves the village for a neighboring town, where she gives birth to a child. Unable to support the child, she brings the baby to the village hotel run by two Germans, and, under cover of darkness, leaves the baby there. The baby is adopted by the village, named Glory Glory, and brought up by the two Germans.

A good part of the fun comes in the titles
1 February 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The Unity Sales Corporation showed to the trade last week a six-reel subject entitled "Glory." Kolb and Dill, the well-known German comedians, perhaps better known as Louie and Mike, are featured. The story combines comedy and drama as well as a bit of melodrama. A good part of the fun comes in the titles, but in the action there are several bits of good straight drama. There are entertaining qualities in "Glory." Kolb and Dill have the roles of small town merchants, the big men of the place. The village is situated near oil land, and the story turns on the accidental discovery of this fact and the taking over of the oil rights by an outside capitalist while the villagers are in ignorance of the buried wealth so near them. A lawyer sent to put over the deal marries one of the village girls and deserts her. There is a child of this marriage, Glory, adopted by the village when the mother abandons it. When Glory grows to be a big girl she falls in love with the son of the man who "trimmed" her fellow-townsmen. Her regard is reciprocated. In spite of parental interference the wedding takes place. There are plotting and counter-plotting aplenty. Juanita Hansen is Glory, May Cloy is June, Wellington Playter is Strong, the magnate, and William Lampe is Graham, the lawyer. The subject is competently staged; some of the backgrounds are picturesque. The story is a wholesome one. The atmosphere of the oil country is well established and maintained throughout. Of course, Kolb and Dill bulk big in the working out of the story, but they have good assistance from the others in the cast. – The Moving Picture World, February 3, 1917
