LONEDALE OPERATOR 1910 Directed by D.W. Griffith Starring Blanche Sweet

Mary's mother calls to her to bring the cattle home, and as she goes across the sands where the River Dee empties into the sea, she meets her sweetheart, Bobby. Together they drive the cattle home. A happier pair than this lad and lassie was never seen, until one day there came to the sands an artist, and, of course, his wonderful skill shown in incorporating her picture in the scene he was painting, amazed her. On the other hand, the artist became quite interested in the girl and she mistook this for love. When Bobby comes to propose she tells him and her parents she is engaged to the artist, but when the girl fails to bring the artist to meet them the stern old father unjustly accuses her and drives her from home. Later, he has cause to repent his hasty action, for "The creeping tide came up along the sand and never home came she."
