Storyline

No more popular fad has ever struck the feminine fancy than the peachbasket hat. This is a creation of headgear that for size outstrips anything yet designed by the disordered mind of the modiste. As a "skypiece" it is a "skyscraper," and in decoration it looks like a combination horticultural and food exhibition. Nevertheless, this mammoth "lid" was seized onto by the feminine world with the avidity of a boy for his first baseball suit. It is only natural that our friend, Mrs. Jones, should experience this obsession, and what woe it preambled! The Jones family are seated at breakfast. Mr. Jones is reading the morning paper. An account of a kidnapping by gypsies engages his attention, and he is filled with horror at the anticipation of the possible abduction of his young hopeful, a baby one year old. He tries to impress Mrs. J., but she is fascinated by the millinery "ads." The situation for Jones becomes more tense when on going outside he sees a couple of the odious gypsies with a ...

A Cinematic Hogarth
3 March 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The main reason why the 34 year old D.W. Griffith made short films like this one was because he wanted to make as many films as possible so that his name would be in the public domain and that audiences would demand his work. He pairs off mainstream culture with diversity in this film by emphasizing a pseudo purity within the dominant society, and then demonising the marginalised. He compares and contrasts just like Hogarth would, painting a picture of self-definition through the process of othering. His characters do not integrate with the rest of the world and are therefore an expression of Griffith's own sensibilities.
