The Marriage of a French Soldier

Director:

Year: 1908

Plot: In the course of his travels with the army a French soldier on foreign shore desires to take unto himself a mate, but as he desires to have the ceremonies performed by a French court he of necessity must bring his betrothed with him. His affinity is one of the dark-skinned tribe inhabiting the coast of Africa. When the party lands at the docks of the home port, friends are gathered and all proceed to the judicial chambers. The ceremonies are too impressive and soon the maid becomes uneasy and dislodges the judge and otherwise disregards the dignity of the occasion. She seeks refuge in flight, is pursued and captured, whereupon the judge unceremoniously speaks the words that seal their fate for weal or woe.—Moving Picture World synopsis
