1919
~F191-2: Maggie Fisher & Marguerite Clark~
~Plot Synopsis~
Director Marshall Neilan gave Marguerite Clark's career a needed boost with this amusing little comedy.
When Sylvia Weston (Marguerite Clark) is asked to take a vow to marry her aunt's choice for a husband,
she responds "I do NOT" and goes to her deceased father's country home at Loon's Lake. She finds three
suppers prepared, at which she nibbles, and then falls asleep. She is awakened by three women-hating
men (Richard Barthelmess, Percy Marmont and Jerome Patrick) who rented the house from Sylvia's
agent to find a place where they could be away from women, as each had had bad romantic experiences.
Sylvia's elderly nurse (Maggie Fisher) arrives and the two women agree to remain in the caretaker's
house. After the men drive away canoes full of women headed for the island, and a male youth attracted
by Sylvia's bathing suit, they begin to grow fond of Sylvia. Christopher Kent (Richard Barthelmess), the
youngest of the three, is visited by a married woman who earlier deceived him, but Sylvia jealously
scares her away by claiming to be his fiancée. Christopher and Sylvia realize that they love each other,
and at the end, are serenaded by the other men. While not a landmark production, this was the type of
light comic film that Neilan excelled at directing.
