Little Nell the Orphan Girl or, A Fight for a Woman's Honor
Laughs come fast and furious in this exciting take-off of all melodramas ever written. The audience will thrill to the joy of applauding the down-trodden heroine and the manly hero, and hissing the black-hearted villain. Wealthy, aristocratic Amanda Tillinghast lives with her son Trelawney, our manly hero. Trelawney doesn't suspect that his closest friend, Daryl Blessingham, is a scoundrel, trying to gain possession of the Tillinghast fortune. Hired as a maid at the Tillinghast home, little Nell Noble, an orphan, almost faints with pleasure when she meets Trelawney. It's a case of love at first sight for them both. Daryl tries to force his attentions on Nell, but she will have none of him and tells him so, in no uncertain terms. Like all villains, Daryl is exposed for the criminal he is, and is carted away, and Trelawney and Nell are united for a very satisfying conclusion to an evening of non-stop delight.
