Product Description:

Pickford rescues a group of orphans from a wicked man. A silent melodrama and one of Pickford's best.

Description by Image Entertainment:

Mary Pickford's silent masterpiece is an AFI official selection for "100 Years, 100 Stars." Hidden deep in the Southern swamps, the Grimes family operates a "baby farm" where unwanted or "lost" children are cruelly worked and underfed. Mollie (Pickford) leads them through a harrowing escape. Also includes 2 early Mary Pickford shorts directed by D.W. Griffith: "The Mender of Nets" (1912, 16 min.) and "Wilful Peggy" (1910, 17 min.).

Plot Synopsis:

In a dismal, dangerous swamp, a sinister man named Grimes holds 10 orphans captive; one girl, Mama Mollie, plays mother to the younger children, doing her best to give them love and care. But Grimes treats the innocents with great cruelty, and when one dies of hunger, the fed-up Mollie determines to escape. So the plucky "little mother" gathers the children, and together they flee from Grimes, courageously confronting the dangers of the dark and murky swamp.
