Fighting Blood (1911)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

D.W. Griffith film has a young man fighting with his Civil War veteran father. After the fight the boy leaves home but notices some Indians are planning an attack so he must race back and help save his family. Griffith is at the top of his game here in this all out action film that has plenty of gunfights and some nice, intense action at the end. Even though the film only runs 11-minutes the director is able to get a real epic feel due in large part to the long overhead shots and some very tight editing.
