See for Marguerite...
12 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film isn't anything too special but it's a fun way to spend an hour. The fact that it stars the beautiful, sweet, and charming Marguerite Clark automatically makes it a must-see. So few of her films survive, what a shame.

This movie is available through Grapevine and even though their tapes aren't usually in good shape, this one certainly is. I was shocked by how good the print looked. There were nice tints, and everything.

The story reminds me of a Mary Pickford film in a way. Lovely Mary (Clark) is an orphan at an orphanage. She takes care of a young boy there and raises him as her own. When the boy's mother comes back to claim him, Mary takes the young boy and elopes. She ends up living in the care of a kindly old woman named Mrs. Wiggs. I will not say too much about what happens next, I encourage you to see it for yourself! You won't be sorry.

Lots of light-hearted funny moments, make this a perfect film for when you're feeling a little blue.
