The Griffithiana Community
2 March 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The 34 year old D.W. Griffith displays hostility to diversity in this short film. He is presenting an unbroken continuity of the settling community in American history, cutting links with the marginalized and using his characters to say that Anglo-Saxon stock has rightful claim to continuity in the New World. The poor are regarded as outsiders in the poor, making an encoded statement that they have no use in society. He contrasts poverty with fashionable trends, allowing it to sink beneath the layers of mainstream sensibilities. The characters are not socially mixed, and it is definitely pitched towards a homogenous preserve.
