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

The Power of Drink (and a Mexican Woman)
5 November 2007 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Frank Powell (as George Peabody) and Mary Pickford (as Ruth King) are a-courting. When Mr. Powell decides to venture out west, to make his fortune, Ms. Pickford is devastated. She promises to wait for his successful return, and gives him half of a locket; and, they pledge their eternal love. While Pickford pines away, Powell gets way-out-west drunk, and takes up with Mexican woman Marion Leonard.

Powell's descent is a little difficult to comprehend; perhaps it is the power of drink. He seemed to have very little use for "The Broken Locket" while in Ms. Leonard's company. Leonard writes one powerful letter, by the way; the mere reading of one may cause blindness!

** The Broken Locket (9/16/09) D.W. Griffith ~ Frank Powell, Mary Pickford, Marion Leonard
