The City Slicker and the Country Mouss

When "mining engineer" George Gowan shows up to look for prospects, he charms Louise Huff into running away with him, using visions of Market Street in Philaldelphia. Edgar Jones and Earl Metcalfe run down the auto to save her from a fate worse than death.

Given that Lubin the studio that produced this short, was based in Philadelphia, I doubt they felt that way. However they were the most conservative of the Patents Trust companies and would continue to specialize in shorts with old-fashioned plots. Lubin, however, arose out of opticianry equipment and knew how to use the equipment, so there are some lovely shots in this one -- although the story and its handling are nothing to write home about.

Co-stars Huff and Jones were married briefly, which might have lent some irrelevant I test to this movie.
