The Brave Deserve the Fair (1910)
A young man comes to the aid of a strange woman whom he sees stagger in the street. He is just in time to save her from a bad fall as she loses consciousness and for an instant he stands helpless holding her in his arms. Then a passerby chances along and by good fortune proves to be a physician. His rapid examination shows him the gravity of the case, an automobile is summoned and the girl is hurried to her home, her address being discovered from cards in her pocketbook. The young man goes to his home, but the barbed shaft of the arrow of the god of love has sunk deep into his heart and he sits restless in his room until he reads in the evening paper of the serious illness of Miss Parks, the girl. The malady is a baffling one and physicians have decided upon an operation for the transfusion of blood as a last resort. Applicants willing to give their blood are advertised for and the young lover assumes rough dress that will better harmonize with his presence and takes his place in the little group of men who are willing to sell a pint of blood for $100. His robust physique causes him to be singled out as the patient and the physician, the same who came to his aid when Miss Parks was stricken, recognizes him and sympathizes with his feelings. A clever young surgeon performs the operation and the lover is out of the house again before the girl recovers consciousness. Her recovery is rapid once the crisis is passed and presently the two meet at the mountain resort whither Miss Parks has gone to recuperate. The trained nurse, still in attendance, recognizes him, but promises secrecy and he is left free to win the girl on his own merits. It is evident that his feeling is reciprocated, but it is not until the girl recognizes him that he gains the courage to speak. She has dropped her bracelet into the water and he bares his arm to withdraw it. The scar of the incision attracts her attention and she realizes then why she has felt drawn toward him.- Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
