The Village Blacksmith

Directed by John Ford
1923    11m    Not Rated
In a prologue, Johnnie, one of the village blacksmith's two sons, falls from a tree that the squire's son Anson Brigham dared him to climb, and is crippled. The squire is an enemy of the blacksmith, who married the woman the squire loved. The main story shows the children grown up. Bill, the other son, has become a doctor, and Alice, the daughter, is having an affair with the squire's son, who has just returned from college. Bill is injured in a train accident, and Alice, accused of stealing some money belonging to the church, tries to commit suicide. The blacksmith rescues Alice; the elder brother recovers and successfully operates on Johnnie's legs, and the film ends happily.
