Storyline

George Peabody is a young man who has been giving free rein to his inclinations, the principal one being drink. One might have concluded he was lost, but there was the chance which the hand of Providence always bestows in the person of pretty little Ruth King, who had secretly loved George since their childhood days. She succeeds in persuading him from his reckless life, and he determines to cut off from his old loose companions by going out West and making a man of himself. Bidding Ruth and her mother good-bye, he realizes that he loves his little preserver and promises to return worthy of her love and confidence. They plight their troth with their first kiss and a heart shaped locket, which Ruth wears, she breaking it in two, giving George one side while she retains the other, which symbolized the reunion of their hearts with his return.

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.
