2 by Griffith
29 February 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Renunciation, The (1909)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Two friends fall in love with the same woman (Mary Pickford) and try to kill one another. Part drama, part comedy but it remains decent throughout, although the performances could have been better. There's a nice twist ending that makes this better than some.

Cardinal's Conspiracy, The (1909)

** (out of 4)

Another failed comedy from Griffith has a woman refusing an arranged marriage so a Cardinal comes up with a plan for the man to change his looks so that the woman will marry him. Short on laughs but Pickford has a small part.
