A Good Finish to the Story
28 December 2004 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This short feature completes the story of Tennyson's "Enoch Arden", starting with a short summary of the first part, and then picking up right where the earlier film left off. It is most notable for the effective use of cross-cutting, as it goes back-and-forth between Arden's predicament and the lives of his family.

The basic premise of the story contains a lot of possibilities, so it is no surprise that besides the direct renderings of "Enoch Arden", both comedies like "My Favorite Wife" and dramas like "Cast Away" have been based on similar premises, and end up going in very different directions. The Cary Grant/Irene Dunne feature, for example, went for comedy, and thus started at a much different point in the story.

On the other hand, the strong point of "Cast Away" was in how Tom Hanks and the production team made his experience on the island so believable and compelling. Unfortunately, almost all of the sequences away from the island were much less believable, and too often were rather routine.

Here, the story continually switches back-and-forth, and in general it works pretty well. It would be next to impossible for a movie to convey the depths of emotions as well as a fine writer like Tennyson could do in a poem, but Griffith does well enough, especially given the limitations of cinema in 1911. Besides the parallel editing, he uses an occasional detail to help emphasize the themes and possibilities.

As for the cast, Linda Arvidson again is probably the most effective, as Annie. The two male characters are less fully developed, but things still fit together pretty well in telling the somber yet interesting story.
