Cast & Crew
Gavin Dishart, newly appointed minister to the village of Thrums in Scotland, arrives with his mother and makes a deep impression upon the residents, poverty-stricken weavers who frequently riot against the manufacturers. He does not, however, succeed in reforming Babbie, a Gypsy maid, who warns the townspeople of a raid by the soldiers; and although he eventually falls in love with her, she is warned against encouraging him because it will mean the loss of his position. Therefore, she promises to marry her guardian, Lord Rintoul. On her wedding night, Gavin learns of her situation and is injured in a quarrel. Babbie, followed by Rintoul, rushes to Gavin, who proposes marriage to her. Lord Rintoul is injured and carried down the river in a torrential storm, but The Little Minister rescues him; Rintoul relinquishes his claim and the couple are married in the little church.
