Enoch Arden Part 1 (1911)

Enoch Arden Part 2 (1911)

*** (out of 4)

Two-part film from Griffith with part 1 about a strong fisherman who marries and has two children but when he can't afford to pay the bills he decides to take a dangerous voyage to sea. In part 2, feared dead Enoch's wife marries another man only to discover, years later, that her husband is still alive. Both films are certainly melodrama at its highest but there's a certain tender charm running through part one and a strong sense of threat throughout part two. When originally released this was shown in two parts but movie crowds wanted to see them together so theater owners edited the two films together and charged double price on tickets. When Griffith and other studios learned of this they decided to sell all two-reelers for double the price to make sure the theater owners weren't making extra money.
