Has Its Moments, But Could Have Been Better
28 December 2004 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This sequel to "His Trust" has some good moments, but it could have been better. It probably works better as a statement of some of D.W. Griffith's personal perspectives than it does as a movie. The story is worthwhile in itself, though - it just would have benefited from more subtlety and from less simplistic characters.

In "His Trust Fulfilled", the faithful George does everything possible to fulfill his promise to his former 'owner', even when it leads him into great personal difficulties. This idea seems to have been a favorite with Griffith, and indeed one of his best short features, "The Girl And Her Trust", featured a very similar idea, but in a different and more contemporary setting.

The story really has some potential, and there are some moments when it seems about to become quite moving. But, unfortunately, the story too often goes for quick, simple resolutions of problems, and on more than one occasion it stretches the portrayal of George past the point of credibility.

Sometimes when film-makers feel too passionately about their material, they push too hard and make it less believable rather than more so, and that could be the case here. It's still probably worth seeing if you are interested in silent dramas and/or cinema history, but a slightly different approach could have made it a much better movie.
