Reel Life - 15 August 1914 - Tom Gaylord ( Tod Browning ), suitor for Fay's ( Fay Tincher ) hand, is repulsed by her father ( Max Davidson ) because he has no money. Soon after a traveller comes to town with a Hindu image, a mascot of the gods. He is trailed by two Hindu priests who are sworn to hill the person who has stolen the precious idol. Closely pursued, the traveller throws the image in Fay's father's window, who, being a collector of antiques, is delighted with his windfall. But later, when he finds that the priests are seeking to kill the possessor of the mascot, he is terrified. After trying vainly to get the image off on numerous persons, he is glad to let a mysterious Hindu take it off his hands in return for a considerable sum of money and the promise of his daughter in marriage. When the "Hindu" removes his disguise, the father finds that Tom Gaylord has made capital of the mascot scare.
This 1914 silent one reel comedy was produced by the Komic Pictures Company, starring Fay Tincher and Tod Browning. The survival status of The Mascot is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent.
