Keep it or Drown it, Idol Dancer Animated GIF

Clarine Seymour has found drunk-as-a-lord Richard Barthelmess on the beach. Her daddy is tired of her always bringing things home so Clarine must ask for permission to keep her new pet.

The Idol Dancer was directed by D.W. Griffith. Miss Seymour (who sadly passed away in 1920) was his sassy heroine.

And don’t worry. No Richard Barthelmesses were injured in the making of this picture.
