Little Lord Fauntleroy

1
Miss Pickford, with the
 aid of the camera, has
been able to portray
both the part of Little
Lord Fauntleroy and 
Dearest, the Mother.

2
New York City years ago,
 when our mothers and
 fathers were young.

3
Cedric Errol, who has reason
 for being in a hurry.

4
The reason for
 Cedric's haste -
the school bully.

"You curly headed sissy!"

The widow Errol cherished
 only one joy in life --
    her son Cedric.

Dearest, the mother ......

9
"Have you been fighting with
 that Billy Williams again?"

10
"No Dearest, he did
 all the fighting."

11
"Billy, have you been
  in another fight?"

12
"I had to fight -
  a big bully
 picked on me!"

13
"Cedric, I cannot bear to
   have you grow up,
 but if you insist upon
 having your hair cut --"

14
"If father wore curls --
  I'm proud of them."

15
"My father wore curls --
  you insulted him --
      apologize!"

16
     ENGLAND _
An ancestral castle --

17
--- wherein lives the
Earl of Dorincourt,
fabulously rich, but
a friendless recluse.

18
The sole surviving
 son and heir of the
 Earl of Dorincourt.

19
Havisham, the Earl's
    solicitor.

20
"Your Lordship, I have spoken
 to your son, but, I fear,
 with the usual result --
   he is incorrigible."

21
"I hold you largely re-
  sponsible, Havisham.
 You should have halted
 his reckless extravagance."

22
"By Heavens, Havisham --
 what if this scalawag son
 of mine should drink
 himself to death! --
 the name of Dorincourt
  would die with me."

23
"My Lord, you forget that
  your son Cedric had
 a male off-spring from
 his unfortunate marriage."

24
"I warn you -- never
 refer to that woman
 or her brat again!"

25
Cedric has many admirers
  but his best friend is
Hobbs, the corner grocer.

26
"No hen ever lived
 that could lay eggs
 worth that much."

27
"How is business today,
     Mr. Hobbs?"

28
"Don't worry, Mr. Hobbs ~ ~
    when I get to be
 President of the United
 States, you're going to have
 a big grocery store right
 next to the White House."

29
"Mr. Hobbs, Mother wants
  twenty cents worth
      of powder."

30
"Face, gun, or bug?"

31
"Oh, no! Baking powder."

32
"Cedric, we should be proud
  we was born Yankees ---
 I was readin' about the
 doin's of them English Earls
    and other Tyrants."

33
"They're a bad lot -- them
  Earls and Dooks -- why,
 they enjoy choppin' off the
 heads of their subjects!"

34
"What would you do,
 Mr. Hobbs, if an Earl
 was to dare come into
 your grocery store?"

35
"I'd like to catch one of them
  snoopin' 'round here --
 I -- I'd oust them out
 at the toe of me boot!"

36
       ENGLAND _
The sudden death of the 
eldest son, brings to the
Earl the bitter realization
that nothing can prevent
the title and estates of
Dorincourt from descending
  to the rightful heir.

37
"Cedric's son is undoubtedly a
 vulgar, dirty little wretch --
 but I suppose it must be
 -- you had best find him
  immediately, Havisham."

38
      NEW YORK _
Another best friend of
Cedric's is Mrs. McGinty,
   the apple-woman.

39
"Shure, the rain is after makin'
   me bones ache with the
 rheumatics -- now if I only
 had me a little shtove --"

40
"When I get to be President,
 you won't have to work
 any more -- you can come
 and live in the White House
        with me."

41
The Earl's solicitor 
 arrives in New York.

42
"Mrs. Errol, I am here
  in behalf of the
 Earl of Dorincourt."

43
"Madam, the Earl of Dorin-
  court has just lost his 
 eldest son -- your son is
 now Lord Fauntleroy - -
 heir to his title and fortune."

44
"The Earl unjustly disowned my
   husband and ignored his
 dying appeal for forgiveness!"

45
"How can this cruel old man
   expect me to give him
      my only child?"

46
"Consider the child's future --
   he will be educated
 as becomes his station!"

47
Still another best friend
   is Dick, the bootblack.

48
"My business - - he is
  ruined - - the boss,
 he say if I no pay rent,
 I gotta quick get out!"

49
"When I get to be President,
 I'll introduce you to the
 Senators and they'll give
 you a nice job - - that's
 what Senators are for."

50
The idol of the
 neighborhood --
an ex-champion.

51
"Five cents to have your
  shoes shined with
 Buzz-Saw Brannigan."

52
"So this is Little
  Lord Fauntleroy?"

53
"I beg your pardon sir, but
   my name is Cedric Errol."

54
"Quite right - - but
  henceforth you are
 to be Lord Fauntleroy."

55
"Oh! - I wouldn't like
  to be an Earl, Sir."

56
"Mr. Hobbs says that they
  cut people's heads off!"

57
"You see - your grandfather
  in England is an Earl."

58
"I was going to be President
  but, maybe, I might like
 being an Earl just as well --
 if Dearest could be one too."

59
"-- and now that you are
 a Lord, you are going
 to be a very rich little
 boy -- your grandfather
 wishes me to give you 
 everything you desire."

60
"I'm so glad I'm rich - -
  I can get a lot of things
 I want -- buy Mrs. McGinty
 a stove -- pay Dick's rent
 -- -- and -- -- and -- --"

61
"Wealth is often a power
  for evil -- I hope it will
 bring Cedric no harm."

62
Lord Fauntleroy bears
  the important news
to his friend, Hobbs.

63
"Little Man, aren't you
    feelin' well?"

64
"Mr. Hobbs, what did
 you say you'd do to
 an Earl if he dared to
 come into your store?"

65
"Bless your heart, Laddie,
   I said I'd oust him
 out o' here with the toe
      of me boot!"

66
"Oh, Mr. Hobbs, I'm so sorry
   - - there is an Earl
 sitting on your cracker box."

67
"One of us must have
    sun-stroke!"

68
"I feel just as bad about it
  as you do, Mr. Hobbs --
 You see - - I wanted to
 be President - - and now
 I've got to be an Earl!"

69
The day of Lord Fauntleroy's
   departure arrives.

70
Even the best of friends
       must part.

71
"Mr. Havisham says that Earls
 don't cut peoples' heads
 off any more -- so it will
  be safe for you all to
    come and see me."

72
And at the end of
 the voyage -- the
estate of Dorincourt.

73
The Lodge at the gates.

74
"His Lordship is a man of
   strange prejudices --
 he has made the unpleasant
 stipulation that you are to
 live at the Lodge Cottage
 while Lord Fauntleroy is to
   stay at the Castle."

75
"I have a friend in New York
  who wears a uniform
 something like yours - -
 only he drives a street-car."

76
"Madam, the terms are not
  as harsh as they seem.
 Lord Fauntleroy may visit
 you whenever you wish."

77
"With all this abundance --
  this splendor - I hope
 Cedric will not lose his
 appreciation of the little
     things in life."

78
"Cedric, you are to live at
  the Castle. I - I shall
 remain at the Lodge. It is
 better so -- this will enable
 you to become acquainted
  with your grandfather."

79
"But, Dearest! --"

80
"Your grandfather is good
 and kind -- love him
    as you do me."

81
The heir presumptive to
 the title and vast estates
  arrives at Dorincourt.

82
"My, what a long way
  for a person to live
 from his front gate!"

83
"Are all those people my
 grandfather's relatives?"

84
"Your Grandfather, the Earl
 of Dorincourt, will receive
 you this evening -- --
 I will show your Lordship
      to your room."

85
"Well, Havisham -- speak up --
   are you disappointed
       in the brat?"

86
"Brat hardly becomes him,
   my Lord. Really, he
 is a splendid little chap and
 quite clever for his years."

87
"American impudence,
    I suppose!"

88
"I bear a message from
 Lord Fauntleroy's mother --
 she prefers not to accept
 the income you propose
  to settle upon her."

89
"Don't ever mention her!
  It's a sham to hide
 her mercenary schemes!"

90
THE EVENING.

91
"Lord Fauntleroy!"

92
"Grandfather Earl, I'm
  glad to meet you."

93
"Please excuse me,
  Grandfather Earl,
 but you have lost
 one side of your
   spectacles."

94
"Do you think you are
  going to like me?"

95
"Yes sir, I am sure of it."

96
"My Lord, dinner is served."

97
"Just lean on me,
 Grandfather Earl --
 I'll walk very slowly."

98
"Grandfather Earl, you
 don't wear your crown
    all the time."

99
"I take it off occasionally."

100
"It's a terribly big castle
  for just two people to
   live in, isn't it?"

101
"Do you find it too large?"

102
"It wouldn't be too big if
  Dearest were only here."

103
"Who is Dearest?"

104
"She is in there --
    my mother."

105
"What has your mother
  told you about me?"

106
"I must always love you
 because you have lost
 your own children and
 now I am all that you have."

107
Little Lord Fauntleroy
 begins his new life.

108
Absence makes the
 heart grow fonder
and sometimes sadder.

109
"Oh, Dearest, you'll love
     Grandfather Earl.
 He's so good to me --
 and we live in a big
 beautiful castle - -"

110
"-- but, Dearest, it's 
 lonely without you!"

111
"Oh, Dearest, Grandfather Earl
 gave me a wonderful pony --
 I want you to see him."

112
The Dorincourt tenants
 have been reduced to
poverty through the shame-
ful neglect of the Earl.

113
One of the victims
   of neglect.

114
Little Lord Fauntleroy
 and his pony quickly
   become friends.

115
"Your Lordship, these are all
  my brothers and sisters."

116
"Haven't you a Dearest --
  I mean a mother -- to
     care for you?"

117
"I'm Lord Fauntleroy - -
 I'll tell Grandfather Earl
 to send a doctor to
   make you well."

118
"You come like an angel
   out of Heaven - -
 God must have answered
     my prayers!"

119
Lord Fauntleroy believes
 that one of an Earl's
chief virtues should be
       charity.

120
Neither a gouty Earl
 nor a gloomy castle
can long withstand the
  spirit of youth.

121
"Permit me to congratulate
  your Lordship on your
 miraculous improvement --"

122
"Havisham, you will hereafter
  please confine your ob-
 servations exclusively to
     legal matters!"

123
"When your Lordship is -
  is - at leisure - -
 luncheon is served."

124
"Fine, I hoped it would
  be ready - - count
 these mouths, Brooks."

125
"If your Lordship will permit
  me -- Lord Fauntleroy
 is -- er -- er -- being
 disgracefully imposed upon!"

126
"I beg your pardon, my Lord,
  but I fear his Lordship,
 your grandfather, would
 not approve our serving
 these - - these tenants."

127
"Do you know you're talking
  to an Earl -- who might
 have been President of the
 United States of America --"

128
"And a man who refuses
  to give pie to an Earl's
 friends is apt to have
 his head cut right off!"

129
"Humiliated -- that's the word,
  humiliated -- and in my
      own house, too!"

130
"Can we do anything
 for your Lordship?"

131
"Yes--give--'em--pie!"

132
"Grand-daddy Earl,
 I would like you
 to meet my friends."

133
"Why did you bring
    them here?"

134
"Their mother is awfully
  sick, and they haven't
 had anything to eat."

135
"You will send a doctor
  to her, won't you --
 and some things to eat."

136
"Some day you will be the
  Earl of Dorincourt --
 you may as well begin now.
 Order Havisham to do
 whatever you think best
   for these people."

137
The spirit of youth still
 persists, and one bright
morning finds the old
Earl astride his horse for
the first time in years.

138
"Grand-daddy Earl, does
 this big beautiful park
  all belong to you?"

139
"Some day, when I am dead --
  it will all belong to you."

140
"Then I don't want it."

141
"Oh! There's Dearest!"

142
"I have a matter to discuss
  with the gate-keeper --
 I'll return for you in a
        half hour."

143
A great moment in Little
 Lord Fauntleroy's life
is when he is formally
introduced as the future
  Earl of Dorincourt.

144
"I have the honor of introducing
   to you the next Earl of 
 Dorincourt -- Lord Fauntleroy."

145
"I hope you will all enjoy
  my party - and - when
 I grow up, I hope I'll 
 be a good Earl, like my
      grandfather."

146
But there is one
 more concerned
who is denied the
joy of this occasion.

147
Dearest hoping against hope
  that at the last minute
  she may be sent for.

148
His first formal reception
  proves too much for
      Fauntleroy.

149
"My Lord, something extra-
 ordinary has happened
 -- I must see you alone."

150
"-- distressing news --
 I am sorry to be
 the bearer of it."

151
"I fear Cedric Errol is
  not Lord Fauntleroy!
 It appears that your
 eldest son was secretly
 married and had a child."

152
"Havisham, you are mad!
 Whose infernal lie is this?"

153
"My Lord, if it is a lie --
  it looks painfully like
        the truth."

154
"Grand-daddy Earl, 
  can't I be your
 little boy any more?"

155
"As long as I live!"

156
"Then I don't care
  about the Earl
 part of it at all."

157
"Havisham, move Heaven and
 Earth to right this thing."

158
Grief robs the Earl of
 a relentless prejudice.

159
"Grand-daddy Earl,
  this is Dearest."

160
"Madam, if you would
 pardon an old man's
 whim, I would speak
  with you alone."

161
"I have treated you so badly,
    I dare say you would
 prefer that your son not be-
 come the Earl of Dorincourt."

162
"My wish is that he should 
  be what his father
 would have desired - -
 regardless of my feelings."

163
"If the title does not
  rightfully belong
 to Cedric, I believe
 it is best for us to
 return to America."

164
"I appeal to you, madam, to
   allow me time to make
 a thorough investigation."

165
"I'm hiding it here 'cause
 if a dog finds it, I'll
   get a dog's tooth."

166
   NEW YORK _
Unexpected news.

167
"They've had a spite
 agin' us ever since
 the Revolutionary War,
 and they want to
 take it out on him."

168
"Look! Look at that woman
    in the picture!"

169
"This here business
  calls for a lawyer!"

170
"And a detective!"

171
"And a fight!"

172
"It takes money to fight --
  I'll spend my last dollar."

173
Cedric bids good-bye
   to Dorincourt.

174
"I hope you won't forget
 me -- even if I'm not
   Lord Fauntleroy."

175
"Is it possible that you, a
  lawyer, will allow them
 to rob me of the one
 thing on Earth I care for?

176
"My Lord, I have exhausted
        all hope!"

177
"Here's something to
  remember me by."

178
"My Lord, a lady desires
     to see you --"

179
"- - and the new
 Lord Fauntleroy."

180
"I will see the mother
  but not the child."

181
"I am curious to learn
  the details of your
 marriage to my son."

182
"My Lord will recall
  that I have legally
 established my claim."

183
"I want to thank you
 for all the kindness
 you have shown me."

184
"Where's Dick?"

185
"Your Lordship, we
 are expecting him 
   any moment."

186
"I am not Lord Fauntleroy
  any more. Dearest and I are
 going back to America -- so,
 after all, I'll be President."

187
"But, anyway, I can show you
  Grand-daddy Earl's castle."

188
"If Dick doesn't hurry,
  it will be too late."

189
"If we can't see the Earl
  we gotta talk to his
       lawyers."

190
"I come here to help my
  little friend. Somebody
 wants steal his title, yes?"

191
"Unfortunately that is
       the case."

192
"These are my ancestors."

193
"Your aunt's sisters! Gosh,
  your great-uncle had a
      large family!"

194
"-- -- you, come with
 your ugly offspring,
 come here like vultures
 to wait for me to die!"

195
"But by heavens! I won't
  die -- to spite you!"

196
"Surely my son has more
 right to stay here than
 that brat."

197
"While you are here,
 your Ladyship, there
 is a slight matter -
 a trifle - that you
  can dispose of."

198
"Minna, my wife, all these
  years since you took
 our boy away, I have
 prayed to find you --"

199
"Madam, here is a case of
  bigamy to be prosecuted,
 but if you will sign this
 statement as to the true
 parentage of the claimant..."

200
"Please finish your tea while
  I get my hat and coat."

201
"Pardon me - but how
  dare you put on
  my hat and coat?"

202
"I am the Lord Fauntleroy - -
 the hat and coat - everything -
     belongs to me now!"

203
"I'd better ask Grand-
  father Earl if my 
 things belong to you."

204
"Oh! Run along and
  tell the old fossil."

205
"You take that back!"

206
"Apologize?"

207
"I do."

208
"They were opera singers
  in Milan - - She became
 infatuated with your son,
 and eloped with him, taking
    her child with her."

209
"Tell Lord Fauntleroy
  I am waiting for him."

210
"There was a mistake -- you
  are still Lord Fauntleroy."

211
"How did your Lordship
  get that black eye?"

212
"I got it putting
  the Dorincourt
 coat-of-arms on the
 other boy's nose."

213
"Oh! Grand-daddy Earl,
  am I to stay with 
     you always?"

214
"And Dearest too?"

215
"Lady Fauntleroy, I hope
 you will remain with us at
   the castle, always."

216
"Are you quite sure
   you want me?"

217
"We have always wanted
  you, but were not
 exactly aware of it."

218
The proudest moment
 in an old-fashioned
    boy's life.

219
"--- and a shave, please."
