The Village Idiot's Gratitude

The Village Idiot's Gratitude


Year: 1912

Plot: The Village Idiot forms an unusually strong and grateful attachment for a young peasant wife who disperses a tormenting band of children who were tauntingly following him. He follows her to the town pump and carries home her pail of water and later even rescues her young husband from a watery death and tows the boat carrying the fainted wife to safety. None others but the young peasantess, however, are able to thank him because of the fear and dread with which he impresses all his beholders. His fondness for his benefactress persists unto the very end.—Moving Picture World synopsis
