Storyline

It is often said there is honor among thieves, but not so, as we shall see in this story. Two denizens of the underworld are seen in their squalid furnished room planning a robbery.

Gathering together the tools of their nefarious calling, they start off, arriving at the house shortly after the master had retired for the night. Entrance is easily and noiselessly effected. A chloroform-soaked handkerchief soon puts the master beyond the power of interfering and the safe is broken open. The sight that greets them almost makes them gasp.

For Love of Gold (1908)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

D.W. Griffith film has two men sitting around a cabin before deciding to go out and look for gold. This film runs just over a minute so the director isn't able to do too much with it but the camera-work by G.W. Bitzer is nice. On a personal note, this was my 100th Griffith film watched.

You can view this title from Grapevine through their D.W. Griffith: The Director Series, which features all original scores and nice picture quality.
