Florence Lawrence Makes Biscuits for Biograph
5 November 2007 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Florence Lawrence makes "Her First Biscuits" for husband John R. Cumpson. But Ms. Lawrence's biscuits aren't as charming as she; when Lawrence leaves the room, Mr. Cumpson tosses the biscuits out the window, pretending they were delicious, and leaves for work. Proud of her successful baking endeavor, Lawrence packs up her remaining biscuits, to bring to Cumpson's workplace, a "Theatrical Booking Office".

"Biograph Girl" Lawrence shines. There is mild fun in watching a slew of 1909 D.W. Griffith players acting "theatrical" after partaking of Lawrence's distasteful biscuits! Not surprisingly, Mack Sennett is a stand-out among the bunch - however, for the most part, the promising comedy bits/situations are far too underdeveloped to make this film a comic classic.

*** Her First Biscuits (6/17/09) D.W. Griffith ~ Florence Lawrence, John R. Cumpson, Mack Sennett
