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

In Elizabethan England, Mary Pickford (as Dorothy Vernon) is contracted by her father, Anders Randolf (as George Vernon), to marry cousin Marc McDermott (as Malcolm Vernon) upon reaching the age of eighteen. But, Ms. Pickford also wants to marry Allan Forrest (as John Manners). The "Lord" and "Lady" set of Rutland Castle and Haddon Hall await her decision. Who will Pickford choose?

"Dorothy Vernon of Haddon Hall" is an expectedly opulent Pickford production. Its strength is in the rich sets and photography displayed on screen; Pickford regulars Charles Rosher and Marshall Neilan contribute. Nepotism is represented not only by the presence of sister Lottie in a supporting role, but also by brother-in-law Forrest, who is a likable leading man. Pickford employs a touch of slapstick humor early in the running time; possibly, as she playing a teenager. Reaching maturation, the character, and film, become exceedingly lugubrious.
