Cast & Crew
The widowed Mrs. Malarkey and her daughter Molly-O are unable to pay their rent to Joseph McGuire, the agent for the man who owns most of the Irish county where they live. As a result, Molly-O breaks off her new romance with Larry O'Dea, whom she believes drives a carriage for a living, and agrees to marry Joseph's son Denny, who has promised her that, once they are husband and wife, she will never have to worry about the rent again. Just before the wedding, Denny convinces Molly-O to accompany him to an inn, and once they are alone there, he tries to seduce her. Molly-O resists, and, hearing the struggle, Larry rushes in to rescue her. Afterward, he reveals that he is really Sir Lawrence O'Dea, Joseph's employer and the owner of all the property in the area, and then begins making plans with Molly-O for their marriage.
According to contemporary sources, this film was the first to use soft-focus lenses, which were made by Carl Strauss. Granville Warwick was D. W. Griffith's literary pseudonym.
