In the Land of the Gold Mines (1908) Short, Drama · 2 May 1908
A pretty girl in a dense wood is picking dead branches for kindling purposes, when she is attracted by a noise and has just time to conceal herself behind a centenarian oak to avoid being detected by a whole army of Imps, who start digging just a few paces away from her. They dig a big hole and disappear in the bowels of the earth among roaring flames. Terrified, but pushed by curiosity, the young woman goes to investigate the mysterious spot, when a fairy coming up bids her follow, and they are next seen under the earth in the kingdom of the "Gold and Coin Fairy." Following her through the dark paths and caves of this subterranean land, we see the Imps at work, loaded with heavy gold ingots, throwing the valuable metal in a big cauldron and a few minutes later bringing forth a beautiful mass, a liquid gold. The fairy takes a spoonful of the metal and letting it drop on an anvil has soon made coins of various nations before the astonished and dazzled eyes of the maid. From there we follow our visitor to a tremendous grotto, where upon waving her wand she calls forth an army of beautiful girls, each representing a different nation of the world above, and as they pass before the young host fairly smother her with a shower of all the various coins. The astonished girl fills her apron with the precious gifts and is going to leave this enchanted place when all the Imps and fairies, coming up to bid her good-bye, make a remarkable apotheosis where beauty and wealth mingle together in a most entrancing picture. - Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
