John Randolph was truly a happy man when he brought Molly as his wife to the humble little home in the village. John was a bright, ambitious young man, who sought to improve their condition in life. It is true he worked hard, but it grieved him to see his wife toiling at her arduous household duties. His fondest dream was to have his dear wife mistress of her home, with those around her to do the labors. At length his dream is realized. Having studied the stock market, he becomes successful therein, and they remove to New York, where they occupy a palatial home. Alas, how much better off would they have been in their simple country house. But one never can tell. It is the old story, earned success brings happiness, easy money, woe. In New York success attends his every move, and he is soon a very rich man, and a power in the stock market. It is now that domesticity chafes and he seeks recreation outside his own home, mingling with a set in which his wife would be entirely out of place... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

4 out of 10
27 May 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I scored this 11 minute offering a 4 out of 10 because the 34 year old D.W. Griffith does not look favourably upon the disadvantaged. Any engagement that he has with them in this film is merely to advance his own interests and is purely cosmetic. He does not see them as useful citizens, and therefore relegates them into the shadows without giving them screen time to improve themselves and become a higher state of being. He doesn't enhance the audience's experience of his films. He adds nothing to the storytelling of this particular project, and the perspective from which he views the world is dull and misshapen. The camera needs to pay a lot more attention to detail.
