Young lovers Jimmie and Marna flee on a train with plans to elope but meddling family and a jealous rival work to stop their plans.

Also includes the special short:


Exclusively using footage from the above feature this short tells an entirely new tale about a eccentric millionaire being rescued from his greedy family. A very interesting example of how Triangle edited a feature into a completely different short! 28 minutes

Both presented with theatre organ scores by David Knudtson
