~L368-101: Elsie Ferguson~
~Plot Synopsis~
Gogo Pasquier (Charles Eaton), the small son of a Parisian chemist and the sweetheart of Mimsi
Seraskier (Elsie Ferguson), is adopted by Colonel Ibbetson (Montagu Love), an English rake,
following the death of his father and mother. In England, as Peter Ibbetson (Wallace Reid), he grows
up in a dissolute environment and is repulsed by the colonel. One night, at the theater, he meets
Mimsi and learns that she is now the Duchess of Towers. In the dressing room of a dancer, Peter
quarrels with his uncle, who asserts that Peter is, in fact, his son, and in a later encounter Peter kills
him in self-defense. Although he is tried and sentenced to be hanged, Peter's sentence is commuted
through the influence of the Duchess of Towers to life imprisonment. Both grow old, but their dream
life continues; Mimsi perishes while rescuing children from a burning orphanage, her soul returns to
Peter when he dies, and the two are reunited in spiritual bonds.
