Storyline

Elise's father was a guide in the great forests of lower Canada. Jean, the fiddler, loved her. Jean made his violin sing strange, wonderful things about the stars and the moon and the birth of dawn.

And then Jack Hartopp came up from the city with his sister for the fall shooting.

A "woodsy" story
6 January 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An out-of-door "woodsy" story, with Mary Fuller in a part like that of Babbie in "The Little Minister." The slight plot is made fascinating by her artistic work, ably assisted by Augustus Phillips and Harry Beaumont. The pastoral touches awaken the interest of the observer early in the film. A very pleasing offering. - The Moving Picture World, November 22, 1913
