Storyline

Sallie Marsh, a pretty country girl, is in love with Billie Lane. All goes merrily until Lillian Wilton, a city girl, appears on the scene, turns Billie's head and makes Sallie very jealous. Jack Miller, a college chap, returns home and pays court to Sallie. In return she makes Billie feel that he has a rival. At the husking bee Lillian finds the red ear and she, as queen, chooses Billie for her king. This is too much for Sallie and she leaves the husking bee and its festivities in a miff. This is just what Lillian wanted her to do. She is satisfied with her accomplishment and casts flirtatious and longing eyes at Jack Miller, and not without success, for Jack is a willing response. Poor Billie tries to make up with Sallie, resorting to all sorts of peace offerings, until he is perfectly miserable when Sallie, paying him back in his own coin, refuses all his inducements. As a final humiliation, she tells him that unless he comes to her upon his hands and knees she will not take back ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Could any girl love a man after seeing him cut such capers?
3 June 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

This picture is not to be named in the same breath with the Vitagraph life-portrayals, although the talented young lady who plays the leading role plainly understood how a girl of the standing and experience of its heroine would be likely to act. This heroine was a well-to-do farmer's daughter who loved a very rural, yet not quite truthfully rural, youth. The village doctor's niece came in an automobile to visit him. At the husking bee, a few days later, this niece found a red ear and, as she had the right, demanded the kiss, choosing the most reluctant looking youth present, the girl's sweetheart. This precipitated a quarrel. The girl gave back her ring and told the youth that he'd have to crawl on hands and knees to her before she'd take it back. After several vain efforts, he did crawl in from the gate; but he suffered in so doing apparently a physical inconvenience in an act which as garden weeder he had probably done many times. The girl comes out to meet him and makes him, as further punishment, place the ring in his mouth and bark like a dog. Could any girl love a man after seeing him cut such capers? To show how the audience regarded it, we may state that two men behind the reviewer expected the youth to swallow the ring, plainly looking upon the picture as a farce. There were several laughs in it. - The Moving Picture World, December 16, 1911
