Griffith 1910
26 February 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Child of the Ghetto, A (1910)

*** (out of 4)

D.W. Griffith film where he once again attacks the rich. After her mother's death, a young woman goes to the ghetto of New York City to find a job. She's given a job sewing but her boss then accuses her of stealing his wallet even though it was his own son who did it. The girl runs off into the country where she's taken in by a nice farmer and her son. Griffith really did love attacking the rich for their abuse of the poor and this film here shows that. Griffith made various films like this but the added benefit here is the performance of Dorothy West as the young girl. She's got the perfect sad face to really add a lot of depth to her character. Henry B. Walthall plays the farmer's son.
