Storyline

Adonese is returning home from seeing the woman he is courting, and he is driving around a corner when his car accidentally brushes against the tramp 'Faithful' and knocks him over. Feeling sorry for him, Adonese helps him up and buys him a new suit of clothes. The naively innocent Faithful reads too much into this gesture, and he begins to follow his benefactor everywhere, expecting to receive future gifts. Soon Adonese becomes frustrated, and he looks for a way to free himself from Faithful's constant presence. Written by Snow Leopard

A Mack Sennett Comedy
16 October 2002 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

When we think of D.W. Griffith, we think of his epic features; or perhaps we think of the short melodramas. We don't think about the comedies he directed, and this is puzzling to me. Even his unhappiest dramas had their touches of humor.

In the four hundred or so films that Griffith directed for Biograph, he turned out a fair number of comedies, often using Mack Sennett. Here, Mack Sennett plays the title role, of a too-loyal friend who hangs around when he's not wanted.

Of course it all ends with a chase. Griffith didn't quite invent the movie chase, the rush to rescue whoever it is that needs rescuing, but he certainly perfected it. Here we have a lovely variation, as Adonese keeps trying to run away, but Sennett keeps turning up. Very amusing.
