~The Great Love~
~Plot Synopsis~
The mercurial Marshal Neilan warmed the director's chair for the 1925 comedy The Great Love.
Robert Agnew plays a small-town doctor (Dr. Lawrence Tibbits) who takes care of an ailing circus
elephant named Norma when she was injured in a fire. The circus moves on, but Norma, who has
become quite attached to the young doctor, keeps coming back, trampling everything in her way.
Minette Bunker (Viola Dana), the girl Tibbits loves, is kidnaped by one of her frustrated suitors, and
Tibbits goes to the rescue, aided by Norma and 2,000 Boy Scouts. Norma later returns to the circus,
and Minette prepares herself for the joys and sorrows of being a country doctor's wife.. A variation on
this yarn, Zenobia, was filmed in 1939, with Oliver Hardy as the doctor and "Miss Zenobia" as "herself".
