Storyline

Before George goes out west to earn his fortune, he and Ruth each take half of a broken locket as a pledge of their love. Out west, George becomes a drunk, and is seduced by a girl who writes to Ruth, telling her that George is dead. In shock, Ruth becomes feverish and loses her sight. Later, when George returns a broken-down drunk, Ruth can't see what a sad mess he's become, and is joyous at his return. Written by Anonymous

Broken Locket, The (1909)

** (out of 4)

strange an uneven short from Griffith has a man leaving his wife (Mary Pickford) so that he can make them rich. Before he goes the two break a locket in half to remind each other of their love. The film doesn't make too much sense and it jumps all over the place making it rather hard to follow.

Strange Meeting, A (1909)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A woman is forced into robbing from a preacher but later she wants to repent so she goes to that same precher for forgiveness. Griffith does his usual moral job here with religion being looked at very highly. Nice but nothing overly good.
