Getting Even (1909)

*** (out of 4) D.W. Griffith comedy about a mining town where all the men are in love with a young woman named Lucy (Mary Pickford). Budd, a younger guy, is also in love with her but he's constantly being picked on by the other men. To get even, Budd goes to a local dance dressed as a woman and soon all the guys start to hit on him. This is a pretty good short that has a few nice laughs. I'm not sure if this was one of the first cross dressing movies or not but I believe it's the earliest I've seen.

Awakening, The (1909)

** (out of 4)

D.W. Griffith short, which is rather rare because it has a screenplay by Mary Pickford. A man reluctantly marries a girl (Pickford) so that he can get his uncle's riches but after he gets the money he dumps her. Soon afterwards he begins to start seeing her face wherever he looks. This is a pretty by the numbers flick from Griffith who really doesn't bring much life to the story. I'm going to guess this is due to his feued with Pickford who not only demanded more money but demanded that Griffith let her write, which the director wasn't keen on.
