Her crowning glory( Visual )

2 editions published between 1911 and 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Released in September 1911, Her crowning glory comes seven months into the series popularly called 'Bunnyfinches.' The film's title refers to the 'chestnut curls' of Flora Finch's character, who is, as Vitagraph's publicity put it, 'a governess who possesses a luxuriant head of hair and a face that is a shame to speak of.' Bunny is the indulgent widowed father of an undisciplined daughter, played by eight-year-old Helene Costello, daughter in real life of Vitagraph's dramatic star Maurice Costello. ... A round-robin of household jealousies and surprisingly vicious schemes. (The nurse's first ploy to help her ward--and herself--is easy to miss: She gives the spoiled daughter a pin to stab the governess in the leg)"--Accompanying documentation, Treasures from American film archives, 2000
