Griffith 1909

Lines of White on Sullen Sea (1909)

*** (out of 4)

D.W. Griffith film about a sailor who promises to marry a woman just to get her off his back. At his next port he finds a woman who he really marries while the girl back at home continues to wait for him. When the sailor finally returns home he learns that the girl there is dying so he goes to her to make her final moments happy. Even with all that said, there really isn't too much of a story here but Griffith adds his usual touches that make this worth watching at least once. Mary Pickford has a small role.
