Mountaineer's Honor, The (1909)

*** (out of 4)

D.W. Griffith film about a young girl (Mary Pickford) who falls in love with a rich man but once he breaks her heart, the girl's brother goes out to protect her honor. This is a pretty good film from Griffith who's clearly showing off his Southern heritage here. Pickford gives a wonderful performance as the young girl and it's certainly the best I've seen from here in these early Griffith films. The film ends on a very strange note.

This film is available through Grapevine in part of their D.W. Griffith: The Director series.
