Mary Pickford stars in one of her few surviving IMP films from 1911, a historical romance drama with intertitles composed of stanzas from a poem.
All much ado about nothing, including an inexplicable and unintentially comical sword duel. One can clearly see why, if this film is representative, Pickford wanted out of her IMP contract. Carl Bennett
