Song of the Shirt, The (1908)

** (out of 4)

More melodrama from D.W. Griffith, this time he covers the poor living in an urban area. Once again, nothing too special here, although Griffith does a nice job at showing off the living conditions of these poor people.

Romance of a Jewess (1908)

** (out of 4)

A female working in a pawn shop oversteps her arranged marriage so that she can be with her true love who just happens to be an Indian. Slight melodrama from D.W. Griffith really doesn't have anything overly interesting going for it.

Money Mad (1908)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A homeless man finds a wallet full of money and this sets off a mad cap of adventure for various characters. Here's a comedy from Griffith, which remains interesting throughout even though the comedy never really shines through.
