Storyline

Mr. Jones, since his last escapade, had made strenuous efforts to amend the reputation he had gained in the eyes of the ladies of the Temperance League. But Oh! the ordeal, for such it was, was telling on him, and his pent-up spirits were threatening ebullition, when at last the chance comes. The league arranges to attend a three-days' convention out of town, and when Mrs. Jones departs, Jones sends a note to Smith, telling him to bring the gang, and they would have a "Prayer Meeting," enjoining him not to forget the "fixings." Well, the gang are not long in putting in an appearance, for they feel that every minute's delay is a chunk lost from a golden opportunity for fun. Of "fixing" there is much, and it isn't long before they are in the "Wild Indian" stage of inebriety. During this time the feminine nemesis of Rum, the League has arrived at the station just in time to see the train pull out. Madder than wet hens, they decide to pass the night with Mrs. Jones.

The Jones Series
5 February 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This 16 minute film was part of the 'Jones Series'. The 34 year old D.W. Griffith uses the camera pan in order to bring the audience closer to the characters. This enables us to identify with the protagonist and follow them through right to the end of the story.
