The Biograph Girl and the Beard
5 November 2007 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Princess Florence Lawrence ("The Biograph Girl") is fickle with men; she rejects bearded Frank Powell when he arrives for their royal wedding, and refuses to greet him with a kiss. The royal court is thrown asunder; so, court "Cardinal" James Kirkwood conspires to reintroduce lovely Ms. Lawrence to the dashing Mr. Powell. First, he has Powell shave his beard (leaving the moustache attached); then, he arranges to have Powell save Lawrence from a staged attack, by four men. As planned, Lawrence falls for her noble savior; but, later, she learns of the deception, and sends him away. Yet, she loves him…

The D.W. Griffith stock is more difficult to spot in costumed frocks. Lawrence is pretty as the Princess; she and Powell have fun playing for the "The Cardinal's Conspiracy". Griffith always makes the most out of a man's facial hair.

*** The Cardinal's Conspiracy (7/12/09) D.W. Griffith, Frank Powell ~ Florence Lawrence, Frank Powell
