| Cutdown
Pauline Johnson has graduated with a degree to teach elementary school. However, there are no openings, and she has ideas above her station that do not comport with her poor tavern-keeping parents.

To look at a 26-minute Pathe-Baby cutdown of a feature movie based on a twelve-act play by Eugène Brieux is not the way to get a satisfactory opinion of the work; far too many scenes are reduced to a title card and a brief clip. Even when the movie boasts of a cast drawn from the Comedie Francaise. Nonetheless, what is there -- what remains -- is quite satisfactory, with good attention to the technical aspects of film-making, and the acting and situations well performed.

Pauline Johnson's real name was Katherine Johnson. Her career as a film actress lasted only ten years, spanning the 1920s. Her last movie was THE FLYING SCOTSMAN, a part-takie railroad movie. After that, she seems to have retired. She died in 1947, aged 47.
