Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The mercurial Marshal Neilan warmed the director's chair for the 1925 comedy The Great Love. Robert Agnew plays a small-town doctor who takes care of an ailing circus elephant. Once cured, the pachyderm refuses to leave Agnew's side! Everything turns out OK when the elephant aids in the rescue of Agnew's kidnapped girlfriend Viola Dana. A variation on this yarn, Zenobia, was filmed in 1939, with Oliver Hardy as the doctor and "Miss Zenobia" as "herself".
