Griffith 1909
26 February 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Light That Came, The (1909)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

D.W. Griffith's take on the Cinderella story. A deformed woman is reminded of how bad see looks since she lives with two beautiful sisters who are always getting dates. As chance would have it, the deformed woman meets a blind man and they quickly fall in love but her hope fades when she learns that the man is going to get his sight back. Will he still love her when he notices she's deformed? Here's another film where Griffith is over-dramatic and overly sappy but hey, it works well. The film has a couple incredibly moving scenes including one where the man regains his sight and sees things for the first time. Another is the end where you can just think City Lights. Mary and Lottie Pickford have small parts.
