One Touch of Nature

Silent Movie

Country: USA

Genre: Drama, Short



A well-to-do, middle-aged man with a foul temper regains his humour when he spends some time in the woods with a young boy (Andy Clark).


  • Duration: 16 1/4 minutes
  • Produced by the Edison Company, this film was written by the American circus performer, publicist and writer Courtney Ryley Cooper (1886-1940), who was a prolific writer of adventure stories but is now perhaps best remembered for ghostwriting numerous magazine articles for FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.
  • The film's title comes from Shakespeare's 'Troilus and Cressida' (Act III, Scene iii): "One touch of nature makes the whole world kin." 'Nature' in this context stands for what is natural and easy as opposed to what is artificial and forced.
