Good Griffith short

Oath and the Man, The (1910)

*** (out of 4)

Griffith short has Henry B. Walthall playing a perfume shop owner who one days gets a visit from a French Nobleman. The Nobleman smells a lovely young woman's scent and invites her to a party but this woman just happens to be the owner's wife. The wife goes with the Nobleman but the husband doesn't do anything until the French Revolution comes around and he sees his shot at revenge. This is a pretty good short that once again shows a top-notch director doing great work. Griffith does a great job a building up suspense and this leads to a very fun ending. There were a lot of extras used for the small battle scenes and if you look close enough you can spot Jack Pickford. Walthall turns in another very good performance as well.
