Put Yourself in His Place

Put Yourself in His Place is a 1912 American silent short drama based on an 1870 English novel. The film was adapted and directed by Theodore Marston, and stars William Garwood and Marguerite Snow in the lead roles. The novel was written by Charles Reade.


The story is of an English manufacturing town {Huddersfield} in which Henry Little, a worker and inventor, is persecuted by trade unions, jealous because he was better trained than his fellows. Squire Raby, Little's uncle, is a forcible character, and a pleasant love story offsets the labor troubles. A purpose of the novel was to expose, without censure, the errors of early trades unions.
