The Indian Mutiny (1912)
Even in far-off India, beauty is coveted. Beatrice Wilson, visiting her brother, a British officer in India, is sought in marriage by a native prince. She refuses him and he plots revenge. He incites the Sepoys to mutiny and they set fire to Jack Wilson's home and endeavor to abduct Beatrice. She is defended by her brother, who in the midst of the excitement is taken captive. Beatrice is seized by the prince. One of his followers takes her in charge. Jack breaks away from his captors, jumps astride a horse, seizes his sister and makes off with her. They are pursued by the prince and mutineers on elephants and horses. An exciting chase follows. Jack, with his precious burden, rushes madly on. He accidentally comes across a regiment of Gordon Highlanders on their way to quell the mutiny. Jack tells his story and the soldiers lay in ambush, awaiting the arrival of the oncoming prince and his savage cohorts. When they reach the place where the soldiers are hidden, they are set upon and ignominiously defeated. The prince is taken prisoner and his followers surrender. Beatrice comes from her hiding-place and confronts the prince, who is furious to find himself so completely mastered. Beatrice, in gratitude, throws her arm about her brother's neck and impulsively extends her gratitude to the captain of the Highlanders.- Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
