Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A Booth Tarkington story was the foundation for the 5-reel domestic drama Springtime. Ordered by her social-climbing parents to marry her wealthy cousin, heroine Madeline (Florence Nash) prefers instead to marry her true love, Richard Steel (Charles W. Travis). The union is staunchly opposed by the hero and heroine's respective parents, who happen to be bitter business rivals. But such is the strength of Madeline and Richard's love that the two old competitors finally stop trying to destroy each other and agree to bury the hatchet. Springtime was filmed on locations ranging from New Orleans to St. Augustine, Florida; it was released by Alco Pictures, an enterprise created by future MGM chief honcho Louis B. Mayer.
