Storyline

A party of Queen Bess's marauding soldiers take possession of the Fitzgerald Castle and expel the rightful owners. The invaders begin to make merry while the evicted family seeks shelter in a hermit's cave. Lady Peggy, however, is not permitted to leave with her family as the rioters insist that she remain and be the subject of their toasts. The resourceful young woman pretends to be agreeable and sits down to dinner with two of the soldiers, while the others conduct themselves riotously in the wine cellar. At an opportune moment Peggy rushes to her room and locking the door, proceeds to fasten a rope to the bed and throws the end out of the window. She succeeds in making a perilous descent to the ground and rides for help. The rioters follow in pursuit and locate the evicted family in the cave. Determined to be revenged on Peggy, the soldiers, now in a maudlin stupor from their libations, proceed to smoke out the refugees. Just as the desperate family is about to give up hope. Peggy ...

There is an unusual amount of real action
21 July 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

There are thrilling situations in this production of Sidney Olcott. The picture was made in Ireland. Gene Gauntier, who wrote the scenario, also plays the lead. She introduces a novelty. On two occasions she fights a sword duel with the leaders of the marauders (Jack Clark), showing much rehearsing for the scene. There is an unusual amount of real action crowded into this single reel. There is a stirring escape by the heroine over a rope down the side of a castle from a high window, apparently half a dozen stories from the ground. The film is one of adventure, and as such is unusual and will make a hit. - The Moving Picture World, February 22, 1913
