The Poor Man's Director
23 December 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Griffith was paid $45.00 per week to churn out short films like this one. It enabled him to develop the language of cinema, as well as to tell stories to uneducated people in comparison with Cecil B. DeMille's middle class audience. He was also granted a royalty for each film that was sold.
