| Mary Pickford Goes Up a Hill to Fetch a Pail of Water
Boyhood chums James Kirkwood (as Joe Fielding) and Harry Solter (as Sam Walters) are both smitten with fair lady Mary Pickford (as Kittie Ryan). When she goes up a hill to fetch a pail of water, both Mr. Kirkwood and Mr. Solter want to help. Ms. Pickford shows a preference for Kirkwood, and allows him to carry her pail, which leaves the jealous Solter fuming. While Pickford does not return Kirkwood's favor either a kiss or an embrace; still, the two men decide she's worth dying for - and, they agree on a duel to the death…

Pickford steals the show; her scolding of the men, and successful "reconciliation" scene is a highlight, along with the outdoor New Jersey landscape, of "The Renunciation". Consider the possibility that Pickford's production of "fiancé" Billy Quick might be due to her character's quick thinking, after she realizes her rivals' plan to duel.

**** The Renunciation (7/19/09) D.W. Griffith ~ Mary Pickford, James Kirkwood, Harry Solter
