Storyline

Jack Bartling and his mother are people of wealth and take up summer quarters at their home in the country. One day while looking over their vast estate, Jack meets Mary, the daughter of a farmer whose land adjoins the Bartlings. One day the young people are brought to a realization of their love for each other, when Mary attends to Jack, who has fallen from his horse. Dave, one of Mary's country admirers, had witnessed her kindly attitude towards Jack and scolds her for receiving the attentions of a rich man's son. Mary refuses to listen to Dave and leaves him. Some days later a house party is given at the Bartling home. Among the guests invited is Muriel Van Osten, who, it is rumored, is about to become engaged to Jack, although he has shown very little attention to her. Muriel learns of the love affair between Jack and Mary and shows her the newspaper announcement of her rumored engagement to Jack. Mary decides to have nothing to do with him thereafter, and when he pays her a visit... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A plot which is never thin and doubtful
20 February 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Very good and altogether sound is this clean-cut drama handling the clash between the loves of a rich man and a simple country fellow for the "girl in the gingham gown." An heiress jealous of the country sweetheart causes the rivals to come to blows and almost murder. The quarrel is presented convincingly and its finish is full of snappy, unexpected surprise. Interest is steadily maintained throughout by good acting and a plot which is never thin and doubtful. No one could miss the story and all will follow it with interest to the end. As a whole, the film will meet with universal approval. - The Moving Picture World, October 26, 1912
