Good but Not One of the Director's Best

Rose O'Salem Town (1910)

*** (out of 4)

Typical morality tale has a Deacon coming onto a "wild child" (Dorothy West) but after she rejects him he goes back into town saying that the girl and her mother are witches. It's up to a trapper (Henry B. Walthall) to try and race and save them before they're burned to death. If you've seen enough Griffith films then you know that he held religion very highly and many films of his would deal with the subject. If you've seen enough of his work then you also know that he isn't afraid to show the bad sides of stuff and that's pretty much what he does here because the man in power, the religious guy, also has enough hate in him to seek revenge with a lie and using his power over people to talk them into believing whatever he says. That's pretty much the entire message here. This certainly isn't one of Griffith's best film but there are enough good moments to make it worth viewing and especially since it lasts just over 10-minutes and the director keeps things moving at a fast pace. West is pretty good as the wild child as she has no problem showing that free spirit that the character has. Walthall is pretty good as well, although God knows he would certainly get better over time. The supporting stock players include George Nichols, Clara T. Bracy and Jack Pickford plays one of the Indians. As we'd see in many of the director's famous features, the ending uses editing to build up suspense as the trapper must race to where the women are being held in order to save them.
