Algie, the Miner - 1912

Country: USA
Language: English
Release Date: 28 February 1912 (USA)
Algie Allmore has one year to prove he's a man in order to wed Harry Lyons' daughter.
Produced in 1912, this film has three directors credited which might explain its quirky jumps in scenes. Algie is played by Billy Quirk in a performance which got the film mentioned in the movie "The Celluloid Closet" which discussed gays in early movies that were otherwise straight.
