Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
British writer-director Henry Edwards wrote himself a juicy part in this silent melodrama produced in England by Hepworth. Edwards played the son of a nasty squire who, under the assumed name of Dick Derelict, settles down in the nearby village, improving the life of everyone around with his writings and all-around good deeds. Chrissie White, Edward's real-life wife and one of the early British film industry's leading lights, played the love interest. Appearing in no less than 22 films together, Edwards and Miss White enjoyed the same kind of adulation bestowed on America's Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford.
