Storyline

Among the green hills and running brooks, we follow the country boy and girl, who are happy in the contentment of their hearts and a ripening love for each other. In contrast we see another picture of a city boy and girl with entirely different surroundings, at odds with each other and the boy disturbed by the coquettishness and indifference of the girl. To assuage his wounded feelings, he tells her he will go away to the country where, among far different scenes, he will die of a broken heart. While "dying" he meets the young country girl and soon forgets all about his city sweetheart. He makes love to the girl. To further his interests and make her succumb to his blandishments, he tears his clothing, puts blackberry stain upon his face and lies down at the foot of a cliff, where the country girl, on return from milking, finds him.

She gives a very beautiful character portrayal
23 July 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A country love story in very pretty backgrounds with some very pleasing comedy. It begins by making us acquainted with a pair of country lovers, and then shows us a little quarrel between two city lovers. The city man comes to the country and tries to flirt with the country girl, even making use of subterfuge to gain her sympathy. The country lad sees through him and shows him up, not crudely, but with a gentle irony that gets over to the spectators very effectively. It is a rare comedy, full of substance and true to human nature. Miss Florence Turner plays the country girl. The part gives her plenty of scope and everyone knows what her capabilities are. Simplicity, unaffected, quiet naturalness are the words that describe her work in this part. She gives a very beautiful character portrayal. She is very well supported, too. The scythe work of the country boy in the first scene would have made him a champion mower. The only noticeable weak point in the picture is in one or two of the backgrounds. The picture of the rocks would have been better for a bit more breathing room; it lacked atmosphere. The photographs are good. The picture held the audience closely and pleased them much. It is a substantial feature picture. As an excellent picture of Miss Turner's acting, it would pay to advertise and use it as an attraction. - The Moving Picture World, January 20, 1912
