Starring Mary Pickford and Thomas Meighan
"M'Liss" puts Mary Pickford in a Bret Harte setting. She is the ragged, untamed child of Red Gulch who shows her deep tenderness only to her dissipated old father. Theodore Roberts plays this victim of delirium tremens with real pathos, and Thomas Meighan is a stalwart young school-master. The background has caught all the haunting romance of the days of forty-nine.
