Storyline

In 1840 Scotland, a young lass named Babbie revels in the country life and frolics with the locals, simple weavers whose livelihood is threatened by increasing industrialization. When Lord Rintoul attempts to rout the rebellious weavers, Babbie always manages to send word in time to prevent their being taken by surprise. Gavin, new minister to the town, falls in love with Babbie, and his relationship with the young gypsy almost costs him his position. But what Gavin and his parishioners do not know is that Babbie is actually Lady Babbie, ward of Lord Rintoul. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Betty Compson Stars
11 June 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Betty Compson stars as the Gypsy girl known as Babbie. She incurs the wrath of Lord Rintoul when it's suspected she has warned the riotous weavers that the police have been called. The local weavers are incensed that Rintoul has lowered their wages. The innocent new minister (George Hackathorne) gets involved after meeting Babbie by chance in the woods where he is writing his sermon. His infatuation with the wild beauty incurs the wrath of the local town council but he refuses to help entrap her. Will love prevail? Long thought lost, a print was found in a European archive and its intertitles have been translated into English. This was an important starring film for Betty Compson. It's interesting to see the role reversal with Compson playing the disguised hero and Hackathorne the young innocent. Compson is, as always, fascinating to watch.
