Storyline

Perry Dudley, a young man of wealth and position, is the center of attraction with the matchmaking mothers, as he is considered the season's best catch. The daughters are by no means backward. In obtruding themselves to his notice. In fact, he is so annoyed and bored by this bevy of fawning females that his life becomes one of ennui. He longs for a change where people are less superficial. While fulfilling one of his social obligations his house is entered by a poor unfortunate tramp, a veritable soldier of misfortune. The poor fellow has a letter in his pocket from friends in his native village from whence he left when but a small boy. The missive asks that he return and he will be taken care of. He is inclined to go, but cannot make the trip on an empty stomach, so his visit to the Dudley mansion is in quest of food.

A wealthy young man playing tramp
26 July 2015 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An interesting love story, with a novelty represented by a wealthy young man playing tramp and going home in response to a letter, working on a farm and falling in love with the farmer's pretty daughter. Complications arise. The young man is sent away. The girl is locked in her room. But that doesn't do any good and an elopement follows. One of the most delicious scenes in a long time is where the girl and her father realize what she has done in marrying the supposed tramp. It is a picture which amuses, and is able to hold the interest throughout without resorting to unwelcome and perhaps depressing scenes. - The Moving Picture World, July 23, 1910
