Storyline

About the year 1830, there lived in a small village in Southern California, Papita, daughter of the widow Francesca. They were very poor and when Papita fell in love with Pedro, a handsome but equally poor young man, Francesca took matters into her own hands, and, without even consulting Papita, gave her consent to a marriage contract between her daughter and Alvarez, the wealthiest man in the village. Manuel, a crippled saddler, also loved Papita. He had loved her since she was a child when he had danced her on his knee. His love was that of an elder brother, and Papita, still scarcely more than a child, confided everything to him. To pacify her mother, Papita married Alvarez, and. before very long, his cruel nature asserted itself.

Among the three best stories of today
17 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

A conventional story with enough freshness to bring it among the three best stories of today. It was produced by F.J. Grandon, in the West, in Mexican backgrounds, and was written by Wallace Clifton. Papita (Clara Williams) has married a wealthy Mexican (Franklyn Hall), who ill treats her. She has two old-time lovers whom she tells of this. One is a cripple (Edgar Jones) and, having no hope himself, kills the husband and escapes into the desert to die, leaving her for the other (William Brunton). Emma Bell plays the girl's mother. The work of all these players is up to their usual mark. The photography is fair. - The Moving Picture World, June 28, 1913
