In a quaint fishing village we see the childhood sweethearts, Bill and Mary, a boy and girl of about ten or eleven years. Constant companions, they hold for each other a regard beyond their understanding. Ten years roll by, and the boy, now a young man, with a ring approaches the girl and the sweethearts of childhood now renew their vows. They are both very happy until fate interferes, it seems, to test the girl's sincerity. Bill while strolling on the shore, which to him since the betrothal is a Utopia, espies a raft with an object on it that looks like a human being, far out at sea. Dashing into the surf, he swims to the raft and finds the almost exhausted form of a fisherman lying prone upon it. Pushing the raft to the shore, he, with the aid of others, revives the man, who is a stranger to them all, having put out from a far distant shore. Bill and Joe, the stranger, become staunch friends, and through this Joe meets Mary. She is at once smitten with the stranger and cruelly casts... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Sorrows of the Unfaithful, The (1910)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Childhood sweethearts Mary (Mary Pickford) and Bill (Henry B. Walthall) are about to be married when a stranger washes up (Edward Dillon) and soon Mary falls for him. This doesn't sit well with Bill considering he's the one who saved the man's life and when the stranger learns of this he decides to do something drastic. It's not often you can blame Pickford for anything but I believe she's the main problem here as her performance is pretty much all over the place. You might also be able to blame Griffith here because her character goes from loving Bill to pretty much jumping on the stranger as soon as she sees him. This really doesn't work with the drama and Pickford's performance is so child-like that you can't ever really take it serious. Walthall clearly steals the film as the hurt boyfriend and Dillon isn't too bad either. One of the best moments in the film happens early on as we see Mary and Bill as kids and the way Griffith cuts this to the current times was nicely done. The film once again deals with morals, a strong point for the director and for the most part he handles the material nicely but Pickford's character certainly needed a few touch ups.
