Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The "three friends" in this sentimental Gaumont effort are an elderly cab driver, his faithful horse and his pet dog. Early on, it is established that both horse and dog have suffered unspeakable cruelties at the hands of their previous owners. The kindhearted cabbie rescues the two animals, forming a strong and unbreakable bond. After the dramatic rescue, however, very little of any interest happens on screen. Three Friends would seem to have been produced as a gesture of appreciation to the many Humane Societies throughout the world.
