US 14m, B&W, Silent
Director: Laurence Trimble; Cast: John Bunny, Helene Costello, Mae Costello, Flora Finch, Edith Halleran, Kate Price

her crowning gloryBased on the old adage, “A woman’s crowning glory is her hair”, Her Crowning Glory is a romantic situation comedy featuring one of film’s early comedic stars, John Bunny, who plays a rich widowed husband who hires a governess to help bring up his motherless young daughter. To the dismay of the daughter and his child’s nurse, he falls in love with the otherwise unlikable long-haired governess, played by the scarecrow-like Flora Finch. The film’s gentle comedic elements are found in the pranks that the nurse and daughter employ to break up the happy loving couple (Klaus Ming February 2016).
