Movies & Million-Dollar Mansions, and Silents on the Islands

The Law of God


This 1912 one-reel movie is the third religious one made in Montecito. Jim, an atheist, falls in love with a minister's daughter. (You can see where this story is headed.) She and her father give him the heave-ho, so he joins a gang of robbers, which pretty much confirms their assessment of his character, I'd say.


The gang of robbers is apprehended, and they all do time. When Jim gets out of the slammer, he visits the girl and her dad, tells them he is reformed, and all is forgiven. (This is the third movie made in Montecito, and the third with a religious theme.)
