The Edison films of 1910 were not known for their quality and originality, thus it was with a sense of relief that the reviewer for Variety heaped praise upon the studio's Unselfish Love. Set in Western Canada (but probably filmed in Upstate New York), the story is set in a farming community, where a young, progressive farmer pays court to the daughter of a set-in-his-ways country squire. The uncredited director seemed to be as fascinated with his surroundings as with his characters; an inordinate amount of attention was paid to the technological aspects of "modern" farming. Given special emphasis was a new-fangled threshing engine, and an up-to-date irrigation machine. No matter what anyone said about Unselfish Love, one could not deny its authenticity.
