Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Country Mouse was one of several pre World War 1 features produced by star Hobart Bosworth. In addition to appearing in the leading role, Bosworth also wrote the script, though curiously he didn't direct: that honor went to another mulitalented silent film personality, Phillips Smalley. In this one, Bosworth plays a small-town politician who is elected to congress. As he fights for his constituents' rights, his plain-Jane wife Adele Farrington sits quietly at home. Only when Bosworth seems to be on the verge of succumbing to the charms of adventuress Myrtle Steadman (actually in the employ of his political rivals) does Adele take a crash course in social graces-and cosmetics.
