In this Biograph subject a most powerful moral is presented against all forms of gambling, and it is indeed a convincing lesson to those given to such follies, for although the hero was rescued from his desperation by means of the game, still the ordeal he passed through was so terrible that he swore never to tempt fate again in the game of chance. At the solicitation of a friend, who paints his possibilities in brilliant hues, he uses his employer's money in stock gambling. His is the experience of so many others; he loses, and of course takes more in the vain hope of recouping. It is the old story. He finds his neck in the noose of desperation, particularly as he learns that his books are to be examined by the expert accountant.

You Can't Buy Spirit
1 June 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The 35 year old D.W. Griffith may have convictions to write and direct, but one thing his short films lack is spirit. You can be the most technically gifted editor in the business, but if there is no soul in your film then it is just a waste of creativity. This eleven minute offering lacked flavour, colour, texture, variety and spirit. It was bland to watch and left absolutely no impression on me whatsoever. It needed a bit a of character and personality, something intimate and universal that would give the story some humanity. I rate this a 3 out of 10 because I'm surprised it was even commissioned to be made. Without a question of a doubt, this short film is a product of the conveyor belt of creativity.
