Storyline

In the year 1550, Sir George Vernon agrees to have his young daughter Dorothy betrothed to John Manners, the son of the Earl of Rutland. Sir George signs a contract, promising that the marriage will take place on Dorothy's 18th birthday, or else he will have to pay a large penalty to Rutland. But when the two children have grown older, rumors of John's wild behavior in France provoke Sir George to call off the engagement, and to pledge his daughter instead to her cousin Malcolm. Rutland now claims the forfeit from Sir George, and meanwhile, John has befriended Mary Stuart, the sworn enemy of Elizabeth, who is now Queen of England. Written by Snow Leopard

Trivia

In Allan Forrest's opening scene, the broad bare shoulders seen as his wound is being dressed actually belong to Mary Pickford's husband Douglas Fairbanks, who was busy filming on the next-door set and was brought in as "body double" when Forrest's own physique was felt to be inadequate.

Mary Pickford as Director
30 October 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Having had success with Cecil B. DeMille in the teens, and set up United Artists with Charles Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks and D.W. Griffiths, Mary Pickford went on to direct 'Dorothy Vernon of Haddon Hall' which she was uncredited for. That's the industry for you. You can do paid work in the industry and not get a credit for it.
