A rare treat from Dorothy Gish’s solo career, as most of her 1910s films are lost and few are available on home media. It’s a story of life in the tenements and it’s all fun and games until someone starts a counterfeiting ring.
Dorothy plays a cute little number from the Netherlands, who falls for a nice Italian boy. That’s all well and good but Eugene Pallette is lurking about, the foul counterfeiter! Light as a feather but highly enjoyable.
How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.The nasty counterfeiters kidnap Gretchen but the police save the day and it all ends with a wedding.
If it were a dessert it would be: A Snickerdoodle. America and the Netherlands can do tasty things when they join forces.
