Escaping a Gold Digger
30 July 2016 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Maurice Costello returns to New York to discover that his father did not leave him a fortune -- not something that would be a surprise to most of us, certainly, but one to him. Equally surprising, Florence Turner, on learning the second fact, gives him back her engagement ring. Has Costello escaped a gold digger, or will her dying aunt get into the act?

The situation is one to which most of us might say "good riddance" -- to Miss Turner, not to the expected inheritance, but the acting in this Vitagrapg short is particularly good and it's a very nicely colored print that I took a look at on the Eye Institute's site on YouTube. If, like many a movie of the era, the people seem a bit foreign to the modern audience, this is still a well constructed and acted movie for the era and well worth the time of anyone interested in such efforts.
