WAY BACK WHEN - 100 Years Ago Today - On July 22, 1918, the "Flying A" film studio released their latest film Impossible Susan. This comedy-drama stars Margarita Fisher who plays a tomboy "with pleasing grace," according to one reviewer. Margarita, a poor orphan, ends up living with her aunt who is the housekeeper in a mansion inhabited by two brothers. The two brothers alternately fall in and out of love with Margarite, and she alternately likes one brother, and then the other.
Since three-way relationships were not acceptable 100 years ago, Margarita ends up settling for one of the brothers. He proposes, and they lived happily ever after.
