Love that tame elephant in this film! How did they get him to do all the things he did? Who was the animal trainer?
There are so many questions I have when I watch old silent movies like this one, and the answers are most often long lost. Here pretty Madge Bellamy loves a circus elephant and he loves her back. Can't say I blame him, even an elephant couldn't be blind to her magnificent beauty. She runs away from a mean stepfather who abuses her and meets up with a trapping/logging community, concealing her identity, and falling in love with a lame violinist who protects her from the evil surrounding them. Assorted villains add suspense and a canoe chase on rapids is well done, with all ending happily.
Best thing about the film is that elephant. Gosh, he was cute!
