Storyline

During the French Revolution, a wealthy couple lives safely by professing republican beliefs. When a mob attacks a nearby chateau an aristocrat bursts into the couple's home. They save his life by disguising him as a servant, but he soon forces his attentions on the wife. Hearing their struggle, the husband intervenes and, stripping the aristocrat of his disguise, thrusts him outdoors to be killed by the mob. Written by Anonymous

The Development of Visual Language
13 January 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

It is better to watch D.W. Griffith's one-reelers in hindsight rather than just for pure entertainment. I don't think I would have enjoyed watching it in 1909, but in reflection you can see how he brought an honesty to visual language that made narrative transcend the novel.
