The 35 Year Old D.W. Griffith
31 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This urban film of 1910 is relatively unknown. It provides one solution to the social problems via narrative. This strikes me as a constructive piece of work because as John Galsworthy said: 'a writer should throw light upon a problem' in order to tackle it. Short films like this one should do the same.
