Released on the same reel as Eclipse's A Trip Along the Rhine, A Country Schoolmaster is almost as laid-back and bucolic as its title. The wimpish title character is subjected to all manner of pranks by his mischievous charges. Things change dramatically, however, when the mild-mannered schoolteacher rescues one of his young tormentors from drowning. The boy's grateful mother immediately falls in love with the teacher, whereupon the film ends suddenly, assuming perhaps that the audience's interest had flagged. Country Schoolmaster was released at the same time as another film with a near-identical plot line, suggesting that someone was copying someone else.
