Full movie description "The Wild Engine":Helen, informed of the danger which menaces an excursion train because another engine on the same track is running wild, mounts a motorcycle and speeds down the track to warn the passengers of their imminent peril. Nearing a river trestle under repair, she hurtles into the river; undaunted, she swims to the opposite bank and flags down the excursion train in the nick of time, causing the engineer to run his train onto a siding just a few moments before the runaway dashes by.
Reviews of the The Wild EngineDuring the 1910s, Helen Holmes played in a series of films where she was an action hero. One of these is "The Wild Engine". The stories are amazing for their day, as feminism and female action heroes were pretty rare!!
In this story, Helen is fired from her job as a teacher because she is too 'frivilous'. I think this means she didn't act quite like a typical school teacher. However, shortly after the firing, she springs into action and stops a runaway train car filled with dynamite from colliding into a train filled with children going off on a picnic. The fuddy- duddies offer to give her the job back but Helen leaves to take a job as a telegrapher with the railroad. And, once again, nearly the same sort of thing happens on her first day...there is an out of control engine careening towards another train on the track. This time, however, she really does go all out--driving a motorcycle, swimming the river and much more in order to stop that train!!
Not only does this film feature a nice feminist role model, it IS exciting and very well made for the era. If only I knew where to find more of these Helen films...
