At the Altar (1909)

** (out of 4)

A man gets rejected by a woman and he plans revenge. He learns of her wedding day and sets up a device to go off at the alter, killing her. He then takes his own life but in his suicide note he tells of his plan. A cop rushes off to try and save the day. This is a pretty bland short from Griffith, although he does manage to get a little suspense through his editing at the end.

You can find this short on Grapevine's D.W. Griffith: The Director series.
