Politician's Love Story, A (1909)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A dirty politician sees a comic spoof of himself in the newspaper so he goes out to kill the cartoonist. Mack Sennett shows up in this D.W. Griffith short, which is mildly amusing with a few nice laughs as the crazy man rips through the newsroom looking for the man he wants to kill.

Jones Have Amateur Theatricals, The (1909)

** (out of 4)

A theatrical family gather together to act for one another. I think that's what this D.W. Griffith comedy is about but it's rather hard to gather what the film is going for. There are a couple smiles giving but not any laughs.
