Abstract:

"The first scene shows a gawky and giggly woman of marriageable age seated on a bench in front of a house reading a popular novel, Three weeks. There is quite a traffic of eligible young men passing by and one in particular attracts her, but he leaves in a nervous condition. Her father goes down to the post office and inveigles the postman into coming home. The hero embraces the young woman and her father comes out of the house with a shotgun. The following scenes concern the preamble to the marriage, the church scene, the bridegroom jumping out of a church window, and the chase by the whole congregation. He is apprehended and returned to the church. The picture ends as the bride is now reluctant in her turn and leaves the assemblage. The final scene shows her giggling over the novel"--Early motion pictures / Kemp R. Niver.

This is in the archives, but not availiable, as it is a old 1908 film.
