Peg o' the Movies (1913)
- Summaries (1)
Peg was a good girl, and a pretty girl. Stephen thought so, and Stephen knew, because he was a very clever young man. For a long while he had been very deeply in love with Peg, and he wanted her to marry him very much. But Peg refused. To begin with, she had to take care of her little sisters. Then again there was her father, who drank as no self-respecting fish would ever think of doing. Mrs. Martel, one of Peg's friends, was employed in a motion picture studio.

On the way back he came upon Peg and the picture company in the act of taking a picture representing an Indian uprising. As it happened the company needed a man very badly who could ride well.
