The Song That Reached His Heart (1910) 11min · Short, Drama · 11 October 1910
Away out in western Canada we see a man of brawn and muscle made rough and rude by his life and surroundings buying a phonograph, and with his pals seated of an evening listening to the old songs of long ago. The sight of the joy and pleasure it brings into their lives is only a make-believe representation of what gratitude the world owes Thomas A. Edison for his wonderful invention. Alone we see the lumberman listening to the song of "Annie Laurie," and as the strains of that dear old song sink deep into his heart the past comes before him and he sees his mother seated at the old organ, father with his evening paper and his pipe, while beside him stands his boyhood sweetheart singing this old song. As the vision fades he tries to cast off his sweet spell, and seeks forgetfulness at a gambling table in a nearby hotel. The threads of fate have drawn the singer of the song of the earlier scene to this same hotel, and just as the lumberman is about to commit the crime of theft the notes of the song reach him again from above, where she is staying. Drawn by the charm of his spell he listens outside her door, and while listening discovers a plot to rob the girl within. The subsequent events reveal his bravery and the saving of her life, which act nearly terminates his own; but ere the picture is brought to its dramatic close we discover that the singer is none other than his boyhood sweetheart, and we feel that "The Song That Reached His Heart'' will eventually find its echoes in the chime of wedding bells. - Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
