Adorable, but in poor surviving condition
11 July 2003 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

The story line in this rare silent film "The Ghost Of Rosy Taylor" was similar to a Mary Pickford type vehicle: young girl's father dies, she is taken advantage of by the system, somehow arrives in America with only the wages of a few dollars on her person, and struggles to survive, to find love and her place in life. Hint: there really isn't a ghost involved here, but therein lies the basis for the comedy.

The quality of the film that has survived is pretty poor, and a disclaimer is given at the beginning of the film. However even through the poor quality of most of the film the beauty of Mary Miles Minter shines through. She showed a sweet flair for comedy that was very appealling. Too bad scandal ruined her career, she could have quite possibly succeeded Mary Pickford as America's Sweetheart after Pickford got older, cut her hair, and eventually faded from public view.
