Movie: Love Among the Roses ( 1910 )
In the Kingdom of Never-Never Land there live a great Lord and Lady, each presiding over their own domain. This great Lord goes for a stroll through his estate and coming to the border of his own land he is struck by the entrancing beauty of the contiguous estate, so like his own, that the inclination to intrude is irresistible. His peregrination is halted by the appearance of the great Lady, who is indeed as fair as the flowers that clothe her land. He introduces himself and invites her to stroll with him in his gardens. She is in like manner entranced by the beauty of his possessions. How alike in beauty are they; a veritable fairyland. If they were only one, for it seems they should be. This thought is mutual, and the Lord proposes a way, a marriage, and so a betrothal of convenience ensues. They know nothing of love and so are content in the anticipation of being Lord and Lady of all Never-Never Land. Little do they dream of the subtle workings of fate, which is, of course, the natural egotism of humankind, but, nevertheless, the lines are being drawn, for as we have viewed the paradisaical side of life, we now go to the homely side, by visiting the sad house in Never-Never Land. Here we find sorrow, toiling and want, and yet we find as in the other a betrothal of convenience between the poor little lace-maker and the humble gardener. They reason that their lot may be more bountiful by joining their meager fortunes. The gardener secures a position in the gardens of the Lady and the lace-maker goes out to find purchasers of her handiwork. The Lord meets the pretty lace-maker and is attracted by her beauty, for he learns for the first time what love is. The Lady meets the gardener and is struck by his rugged, manly beauty and herculean strength, so different from the Lord, her neighbor. She also realizes the power of love, for her inclination to be near the gardener is irresistible. Despite the apparent misalliance in such a step, the Lady confesses she can only be happy with the humble gardener. This intelligence the Lord receives with ill-concealed delight, as it leaves him free to marry the pretty lace-maker.

Movie: The Modern Prodigal ( 1910 )
In the opening of this subject we find the callow youth as he points towards the city's spires, exclaiming to his dear old mother, "Mother, there in the big city is my sphere. There will I turn the world over." Off he goes cityward, ambitious and presumptuous, and perhaps we may add reckless. Alas, the city's whirl is quite a change from the simple quiet life in the country and the youth falls a victim to the snares that beset the unsophisticated. After a bitter experience he returns, and in symbolism we show him in the raiment of sin, a convict's suit. Approaching his old home, he sees there in front of the door the old chair in which sat his mother on the day of his depart. What a difference! On that day there shone the sunshine of hope; today, the clouds of despair. As he regards himself in his prison garb, he utters that penitential cry of the ancient prodigal, "I am no more worthy to be called thy son." Turning away, he staggers exhausted to the pigsty, where he eats ravenously the husks upon which the swine feed. At this point we show the other side, the watchful father and his son. The father is the sheriff and has just received the notice of a convict's escape and a reward offered for his capture, the poor convict, meanwhile, being hounded from place to place by the pursuing guards. The sheriff's young son yields to temptation and is guilty of stealing apples and then lies about it. For this the father chastises him, so in the spirit of rebellion, he goes swimming with his playmates. Here he is guilty of disobedience and is made to suffer. Going beyond his depth, he is carried by the swift running current into the rapids. The boy's drowning seems inevitable, but the cries of his companions are heard by the fugitive, who is hiding in the bushes by the side of the stream, and at the risk of his life and liberty he plunges into the seething torrent and drags the child to safety just as the father having been informed of the child's peril. Here is an awkward situation. He is torn by conflicting inclinations. As father of the rescued boy, he owes the fugitive an immeasurable debt of gratitude, but as sheriff it is his duty to arrest the convict. Here is where duty is unreasonable. However, there is no compromise where duty is concerned, and he is forced to perform it, odious though it be. At his home he leaves the prisoner in charge of his wife while he gets his carriage. The mother allowing maternal love to guide her feelings, feigns sleep that the prisoner may escape with a suit of civilian clothes, and return to his own despairing mother. As the poor unfortunate approaches his home, his mother, stretching forth her hands, exclaims, "My son was dead and is alive again; he was lost, and is found."

Combs many years ago settled in Dakota and married an Indian squaw, and he is now living with her and their little girl of eight years in their log cabin home. One day while riding he meets a horseman bringing him a letter from a New York lawyer telling him to come east at once as he had been left a fortune. Returning home he shows the letter to his wife and retires to make arrangements for his journey. She ponders and thinks, and suspects that when once he strikes the Great White Way with plenty of money at his disposal he will probably forget his half-educated Indian wife waiting longingly for his return. She begins to feel that she now stands in his way and in the way of their child's advancement, so taking up a large hunting knife she stabs herself, and on his coming out to bid her farewell he finds her lying on the ground apparently lifeless. Falling on her body he bemoans his fate, and taking up the knife she has used curiously examines it. His little daughter seeing him with the knife wet with blood in his hand is horror-struck and thinks he has just killed her mother. Scared, she runs to the neighboring Indian camp where are her mother's father and other relatives, telling them of the awful deed they start to avenge the crime. Combs takes to his horse and there is a running fight across country, but being mounted he manages to outdistance his foes with the exception of one who is very fleet afoot. Arriving at a precipitous cliff he has to abandon his steed, and securing the end of his lariat to a projecting bough he begins to climb down the face of the rock. The Indian, however, before he reaches the bottom, cuts the rope letting him fall half stunned. Quickly recovering and half limping, half crawling, he still endeavors to escape but feeble and crippled it is an easy task for the fleet native to overtake him and binding him with ropes to head him back to the camp. The Indians sentence him to death by means of one of their peculiar methods. A heavy rock is clung from a tree over his face, he being securely bound on his back under. His daughter is given a knife to cut the rope that will cause the rock to fall, but at this moment his wife rushes up, for she had only been in a swoon and the knife had not penetrated very deep; she quickly explains to her friends how she had tried to kill herself and strong hands free the prisoner. Mutual explanations and pardons follow and the Combs take their departure and return to their home, for he feels that he will be happier with his family on the plains than if he goes east and claims his legacy. The native life in this film is true to every minute detail, and therefore outside of a most exciting and thrilling story the film is of a very interesting character.

Movie: Faithful ( 1910 )
John Dobbs, a young man in good circumstances, goes a-courting, and returning from the home of his lady fair, his auto runs down Zeke, the vacuum-pated roustabout of the town. Although Zeke was not hurt, he was the recipient of a severe jolt which gave him a temporary case of nerves, which scared John into a fit of earnest solicitude. Imagining the tattered condition of Zeke's clothing was due to the accident, he not only soothes his imaginary hurts with a balm of silver dollars, but takes him to the store and buys him a suit of "hand-me-downs." Zeke is quite unaccustomed to such a bestowal of munificence, and his gratitude is accordingly excessive. So much so that he then and there swears eternal friendship: that he will never desert him; that he will stick to John through thick and thin. John cries. "Holy smoke! What am I up against?" and jumping into his auto dashes off under the impression that he has left the poor simple-minded Zeke on the sidewalk. But not so, for when he alights at his home, Zeke is there beside him, having hooked on behind the machine as it darted off. Well, John's troubles have only begun. He can't move but what Zeke is at his side, his face wreathed in a smile that is childlike and bland, exclaiming, "I can't be happy away from you." Thinking he has eluded his zealous friend, John visits his sweetheart, and during an interesting moment of their tete-a-tete, Zeke's head appears between, earnestly pleading his friend's cause. This sends the girl away in a huff and John receives a letter later that it is all off between them, as she did not know when she became engaged that she would have to tolerate his idiotic friend. This throws John into such a rage that he feels like murdering faithful Zeke. He does, however, club him, but Zeke receives the blows with angelic smiles. It is no use. Flight seems the only course, and John beats it. He has covered miles and sinks down from sheer exhaustion. There he sits, panting, but happy in the thought of at last evading his tormentor, only to glance up and see Zeke's beatific countenance gazing fondly down at him, "Well, I suppose I must make the best of it." So he takes Zeke by the hand and resolves to accept his well-meant devotion. Henceforth the two are inseparable. Zeke, however, has his good qualities and is always solicitous of John's welfare. Later, Zeke has an opportunity of showing his true value. The house in which John's former sweetheart resides is afire, and the girl is in great danger of perishing in the flames, when Zeke passes. The whole town is in a panic, and the first thought was the fire company, whose aid is instantly summoned. While the firemen are dashing furiously to the scene, Zeke is playing the brave hero, for seizing a ladder close by he ascends to the window of the girl's room and carries her down to safety. John has heard of the conflagration and thinking only of the girl's evident peril, rushes up to find her safely in the arms of faithful Zeke. Things are squared and the value of Zeke's devotion recognized and appreciated.

He has spent several evenings in her company and now finds her irresistible. Hence, when he receives a note asking him to accompany her to a little after-the-show supper, he hastens to comply. This note falls into the hands of the wife, who is beside herself with grief, when Bob Martin, a friend of the family, appears. Upon learning the cause of her woe, he suggests a plan to cure Fred of his folly. This remedy is to pay him back in his own coin, to wit: visit the café in his company and pretend a reckless abandon, thereby putting the "shoe on the other foot." Repugnant as this procedure is to her, she is induced to consent as it will mean one thing or the other decisively. Fred has arrived at the stage door and meeting the girl, he is just leaving for the café when the wife and friend appear in the distance. They follow and secure the adjoining private booth to that occupied by Fred and the girl. It isn't long before Fred hears the clink of glasses and a hilarious laugh that is unmistakably his wife's. Stealthily drawing the curtain dividing the booths aside the sight that greets him freezes his blood, for there is his wife, with an empty wine glass in her hand, apparently in a state of mild intoxication, accompanied by their dearest friend, in an instant he is towering with rage. His wife in such a place drinking with his friend, outrageous! Ah! but he doesn't yet appreciate the enormity of his own fault. Getting the girl into another room by subterfuge, he bursts in upon what he deems the guilty pair. Urged by the friend, the wife continues to play her part, though her heart is well near breaking, and almost rebels. At this point the girl returns for her gloves which she dropped and learns now that he is a married man. She scorns him with even more vehemence than his wife appears to do, and departs, the wife leaving at the same time. Left alone, he now realizes his profligacy and the value of his wife's love, which he imagines he has lost. As he sits there alone, he is in the depths of desperation when he espies on the table a water glass filled with wine, it is now clear to him. His wife did not drink, but poured the wine into this glass and pretended intoxication to show him the error of his way, which he now sees only too clearly. What a wretch he has been. What a jewel she is to suffer indignity for his sake. Jumping up from the table, he rushes home with a firm purpose of amendment, bestowing upon her the love and attention she hungered for.
