Filmed in 1917 with Jack Pickford, Gene Stratton Porter's 1904 piece of Americana came back to the screens 11 years later courtesy of low-budget FBO and Porter herself. The latter played the "Swamp Angel," a beautiful Northwoods girl helping Freckles (John Fox Jr.) defeat the villains who are attempting to take over the Limberlost logging camp. Freckles, an orphan, falls in love with Angel along the way, but the difference in their social position prevents him from declaring himself. Nearly insane from unrequited love, Freckles makes no attempt to escape when a huge tree falls, and he is seriously injured. Angel nurses him back to health, and Freckles finally confesses his love; Angel, to his surprise, returns the favor. Freckles was remade in 1935 starring Tom Brown and again in 1960 featuring Martin West.
