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

This eleven minute offering presents too many cardboard characters from the East Coast. It places a heavy emphasis on stage animation rather than focusing on narrative. The love interest between Frank Powell and Mary Pickford is contrived and unconvincing. Powell is not only an unlikeable character, he comes across as quite arrogant and unengaging. He didn't endear himself to me, although I still think that Pickford delivered a good performance. The 34 year old D.W. Griffith still cannot get out of the habit of presenting ethnic stereotype characters are simple, inferior and laughable. The film keeps changing viewpoint, making you uncertain of whose perspective this is being told from. Obviously the director's.
