A bit stiff, but a good example of 1911 drama.

I was lucky enough to find a tinted 35MM nitrate print of this film at the local flea market. The head and tail were missing, but it was sent to George Eastman House and identified using the notes of the late assistant curator George Pratt. The film stars Florence Lawrence, the first actress to have her name publicized, beginning the "star" system. The print has been preserved by George Eastman House. The plot centers around an American girl visiting cousins in England. She is a bit of a "tom boy" but captivates the very proper young Englishmen she meets.
