One year before her "great leap" off a mountaintop in Birth of a Nation, Mae Marsh was cast as the leading lady of The Great Leap. Marsh and Bobby Harron play a pair of young lovers, whose families are engaged in a long-standing feud. Despite the admonishments of their parents, the two continue to meet clandestinely. Through their example, the warring families eventually realize the futility of their bloody behavior. Also featuring Ralph Lewis, Raoul Walsh and Donald Crisp, The Great Leap was designed to keep D. W. Griffith's stock company busy while Griffith was occupied with other projects.
