Her First Biscuits (1909)

**** (out of 4)

Hilarious black comedy/slapstick from Griffith. A new wife makes her first batch of biscuits for her husband. While they make him gag, he lies and says they're very good. The wife then sends a bag to his work for his co-workers and soon everyone's rushing towards the bathroom. I guess Griffith could do comedy when he wanted. I found myself with tears in my eyes due to all the laughing. The facial expressions of some of the victims were just downright hilarious and the ending was great as well. Mary Pickford has a small role.

Way of Man, The (1909)

** (out of 4)

After being disfigred in an accident, a woman refuses to marry her lover and instead tries to fix him up with her best friend. I'm not sure what Griffith was going for here but it doesn't work. There's some nice cinematography and an early but small role by Mary Pickford.
