~Down On The Farm~
1920
~Plot Synopsis~
When The Sportive Banker (James Finlayson) comes to collect the mortgage from The Girl's Father,
he proposes that The Girl (Louise Fazenda) could be bartered for the payment. However, The Girl is
in love with The Rustic Sweetheart (Harry Gribbon), and to foil The Sportive Banker's plans, she
forges a letter purporting that she has been compromised by The Man of Mystery (Billy Armstrong).
The Sportive Banker schemes to use the letter to disrupt The Girl's wedding plans to The Rustic
Sweetheart, but in his eagerness he drops a letter that he has stolen, which notifies The Girl that she
has inherited $100,000. The Rustic Sweetheart forgives The Girl the compromising letter, but The
Man of Mystery appears and testifies that he wrote no such letter. The Girl and The Rustic
Sweetheart then marry and with her inheritance secure the mortgage.
