剧情简介:

A beautiful day in the country! Sunshine, flowers and happy youths and maidens playing games. After leaving the happy scene in the meadow, the tramp wends his way to the home of his benefactress, a beautiful, kind young lady who gives him a little change and a kind word whenever he stops at her window. Her charity has so touched the friendless one that he looks upon her as a sort of goddess and trembles with joy when he sees her sweet kind face. To-day after thanking her not only with words but also with his poor eyes, he tramps along until he comes to a quiet spot by the brook, where lying down he falls asleep and has the most vivid of beautiful dreams. A lawyer-like looking man with a frock coat and top hat comes up to him and banding him a paper waits until he has read it. Poor Tom almost faints from joy when he sees that an unknown uncle, whose fortune amounts to almost a million dollars, has made him his sole heir. He can scarcely realize his good luck, but when the lawyer hands him over the money he no longer doubts the truth. His first thought is to buy himself some clothes, because now that he is rich he must go at once to seek the hand of his beautiful benefactress. The tailor fits him out so splendidly that he scarcely recognizes himself. He hurries to the house of his adored one and when he enters be finds her in the drawing room with her father and mother. He tells the latter the object of his visit and at first they are indignant at such a request, but when they see the fortune he produces from his pocket, they are more inclined to look kindly upon their new acquaintance. When the girl sees him she recognizes him and extends her hand with a smile on her face; he waits a moment and then taking her in his arms he reverently embraces her. The next scene is their marriage; she pale and beautiful leaning on the arm of her proud and happy husband. Poor Tom; he sees all this as plainly as he ever saw anything in his life, when all at once he receives a blow which seems to shatter his every nerve and opening his eyes he beholds two bluecoats, who stand telling him to "move on" or they will lock him up. He rubs his eyes and moves on, and then as if still in a dream stoops to pick some wild flowers growing all around him. With the thought of his beautiful lady still in his mind, he takes the simple little bouquet to her house, where he is met by the butler who tells him that his young mistress is at that moment being married in the parish church, and asks him if he does not hear the bells. Tom does hear the bells and waits outside until the ceremony is over. As the gay party leaves the church he approaches the bride and presents his flowers. She stops and graciously thanks the poor man, who kisses her hand and then stands back as the richly gowned wedding guests impatiently push forward. Tears start to his eyes as he realizes that there is no joy or happiness for him. Love seems to have passed him by. No one cares for him. He has no home, he's alone and poor; while everybody else this glorious day seems to be bubbling over with the joy of living, with plenty of friends to love and be kind to them.
