That old David Belasco barnstorming play Heart of Maryland was given a worthwhile filmic treatment by Vitagraph in 1921. Crane Wilbur, later a prolific playwright/director, stars as a Maryland-born officer who casts his lot with the North upon the outbreak of the Civil War. This causes a rift between himself and his fiancee Catherine Calvert, whose heart belongs to Dixie. All differences are swept away when Catherine rescues Wilbur from a firing squad. Heart of Maryland was refilmed in 1927 by Warner Bros., which had acquired the failing Vitagraph studios in 1926.
