Scent of a Woman
12 November 2007 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Stopping by Henry B. Walthall's "Parfumerie", Nobleman Francis J. Grandon finds himself attracted by the scent of a woman - it's Perfumer Walthall's young wife Florence Barker. Later, Mr. Grandon is unable to forget his attraction.. He thinks Ms. Barker is "formidable"; and, he invites her to an upcoming fete. Baker politely declines, claiming she has nothing to wear. Not one to take "non" for an answer, Grandon insists upon taking Barker out shopping. Baker is a woman who can't resist a new outfit; so, she goes off with her infatuated pursuer. Soon, she is dressed like a Queen, acting royal; and, she forgets poor husband Walthall. He tries to win her back, but is rebuked.

After his wife becomes the mistress of Noble Grandon, Walthall contemplates suicide; however, he is saved by a convenient priest. So, when the French Revolution begins, Walthall becomes one of its leaders, revolting against the aristocratic tyranny represented by those like the Nobleman who stole his wife. Soon, Walthall and his revolutionaries reach Barker and Grandon - what terrible revenge might Walthall seek?

In this "Story of the French Revolution", from director D.W. Griffith, New Jersey is dressed up as France, for an exciting outdoorsy finish. Walthall, in bushy eyebrows, excels; note how he smells a garment near the end, to confirm his wife's presence. As a story, "The Oath and the Man" fails to suspend a great amount of disbelief.

**** The Oath and the Man (9/22/10) D.W. Griffith ~ Henry B. Walthall, Florence Barker, Francis J. Grandon
