|Plot||A very bashful young man calls upon a young lady with whom he is deeply in love. He is extremely nervous and occupies one chair after another, impatiently awaiting the arrival of his "adored." The girl enters with her mother, the caller rises, nervously greets the ladies and by mistake presents his hat instead of a bouquet which be brought, as a token of his affection. He discovers his error, gives the girl the roses, knocking over a chair in his confusion. The mother leaves the room and the young people are alone: they sit at opposite sides of the room, the bashful lover makes several attempts to propose but is too nervous and finally leaves hurriedly, knocking over some statues, bric-a-brac, etc. Alone, the girl kisses the young man's photograph, indicating by her actions that she thinks him slow. Cupid now appears and shoots an arrow at the maiden; she starts as it strikes her. Cupid clasps his hands, comes over and whispers in her ear. She listens, is evidently delighted, gives the little girl a rose, and after waving an adieu, he dissolves away. The next scene shows the Realm of Cupid. Hearts of every description are here; large, small, some broken, some joined together, some pierced by arrows. Cupid enters, holding the rose, consults a book, turns over the pages, finds the number be wants, picks out a heart and hangs it in a frame in which the face of the pretty young girl in the previous scene appears. Cupid then hangs several different sized hearts, one after the other, on the opposite side of the frame, each different one showing the face of a man. A French count, baldheaded old man, and an English lord appear in turn, the girl turning away in indifference and contempt at each character. The next one proves to be the good-looking young man who is in love with the girl. She smiles at him and expresses her love and admiration. Both hearts move slowly to the center, blending with each other. We now turn to the young man's library, where he sits dreaming of his lady love. Cupid appears, shoots an arrow at the bashful lover, leaves a rose on the table, then fades away. A fairy appears, pulls the petals off the rose and drops them into a jardiniere. A rose bush slowly, grows. One flower develops much larger than the rest, and in it the face of the young lady now appears. He reaches out to grasp it, but it mysteriously dissolves into the rose and fades through the air. Returning to the girl, we see her sitting in an open window through which the moonlight is streaming. Cupid appears, gives the girl a rose, which she kisses, and while doing so it dissolves into her lover. A fitting climax shows the young man placing a ring on his love's finger while the roses dissolve around the window, forming a frame around them.... search for Cupid's Realm; or, A Game of Hearts on IMDb|
