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>

The Little Minister (1921) - Lost Film ?
28 February 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Moving Picture World, 7 January 1922, page 112] When the weavers of Thrums, enraged by a reduction in prices for their products, rise against the manufacturers, Gavin ( George Hackathorne ) , 'the little minister' intervenes with the constables in their behalf. Babbie ( Betty Compson ) , a supposed Gypsy girl, is suspected of having notified the rioters that the police were coming so they might be prepared to fight, and a price is placed on her capture. But when Gavin questions her, her beauty and appeal charms him and he aids her to escape. A romance between the pair impends, much to the dislike of the elders of the Scotch kirk and Gavin is about to be defrocked when the Gypsy girl is brought into the meeting and discloses that she is in reality Lady Barbara, daughter of Lord Rintoul ( Edwin Stevens ) , the baron-magistrate of the district. In aiding the girl to escape Gavin had told the constables she was his wife, which in Scotland constitutes legal marriage if admittance is made before witnesses.

The 1921 film version adapted from the novel, The Little Minister by James M. Barrie, was produced by Famous Players-Lasky Corporation and starred the popular actress Betty Compson. According to one source it is listed as a lost film, although a print may survive at the Cinematheque Royale De Belgique. For fans of silent cinema, it still remains unavailable for viewing either way.
