An Officer and a Gentleman (1911)
- Summaries (1)
Lieutenant Fielding, a young officer of the 9th U.S. Cavalry, returns with his regiment to Alvero, Ariz., and finds himself in command with other officers of the regiment, warmly welcomed by the ladies of the post who have been awaiting their return. Among these are Mrs. Gary, wife of the colonel, and her sweet little sister Grace, for whom Fielding has a very tender spot in his heart. A new commandant has been recently appointed to the command of troop "C" and having joined while the regiment was in the field, the return of the regiment to its post affords the ladies the first opportunity to meet the new arrival. Mrs. Gary recognizes in him an old admirer of whom she had been very fond prior to her marriage with the colonel, who is several years her senior. The unexpected meeting results in a revival of the old friendship and an elopement is planned, which is frustrated by the efforts of Lieutenant Fielding, but whose interference results, however, in placing him in a compromising position which he cannot explain without implicating the colonel's wife. This he will not do and maintain silence though he is placed under arrest and ordered before court martial. The captain, his plans interrupted by the interference of Lieutenant Fielding realizing that sooner or later the truth must be known and he will be dismissed from the service, determines upon flight. Fielding's little sweetheart, Grace, realizes that with the captain gone and with her sister's lips sealed by the necessity of preserving her good name her lover's chances for exoneration are slim. Accordingly she starts in pursuit of the captain, heads him off with the aid of a trusty six-shooter, extorts from him a confession of what actually transpired and returns to the post bursting in upon the court martial with the confession, which vindicates her lover and all ends happily.
