A Comedy-Drama
9 December 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Joseph Graybill gets engaged to Mary Pickford. However, when her sister, Marion Sunshine, comes home with her vaudeville partner, Mack Sennett, Joseph decides he prefers Marion. Will Mary do something desperate to deal with her broken heart? Although this sounds like a small tragedy, Griffith handles this one with a lighter touch than usual. Graybill plays his role with bigger movement than usual for Griffith. This is supposed to reflect his hot Italian nature. It also helps turn this into a comedy.

Although Griffith is remembered mostly for his melodramas, with almost six hundred movies to his credit, he did a fair number of comedies. Nor is this one devoid of cinematic interest. His handling of the crowd scene at the Barber's ball is dazzling for the era, as is the number of future stars who turn up at the ball.
