Storyline

Bent on having a summer's vacation, two working girls hire a tent and pitch their camp on the shore of a beautiful lake amid rural and quiet surroundings. As fate would have it, two farmer lads, living with their widowed mother not far distant from the camp, are making their way through brush and lanes until they unexpectedly come onto the bivouac of the girls. Mutual embarrassments are shown, and the boys, who are bashful swains, stand not on the manner of their going, making a hasty and awkward retreat. The boys tell their mother about the two "peachy" girls, and she decides to send them some freshly cooked doughnuts, and employs the faithful dog, "Jean," as a messenger, and the dog at once carries them to the girls, much to their surprise.

The Go-Between
19 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

This is the second starring vehicle I have seen of Jean the Vitagraph Dog. Jean appeared in a score of shorts in the early teens and she was a handsome black-and-white border collie, that most intelligent of sheepdogs. This one turned up in New Zealand and can be viewed at the National Film Preservation Foundation Filmsite.

In this one, Florence Turner and Mary Fuller are camping for vacation and Jean brings them baskets of doughnuts from Charles Kent and Ralph Ince. Eventually the ladies follow Jean back to her shy masters and romance blossoms.

Jean isn't given that much to do in this picture, but the humans are good actors too. If this isn't as charming as A TINTYPE ROMANCE, it's still good to see.
