Eye Wash
2 November 2009 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This Biograph short from 1911 has a rather annoying story: Blanche Sweet rejects Charles West for Joseph Graybill and, through a baking accident, goes blind; Graybill, appalled at the thought, now rejects her. Meanwhile, West goes blind through too much office work. Both at the eye doctor's office at the same time, he recognizes her by her voice and gives her father the money to pay for her surgery. Later, when she can see again and he is making his slow way up the street, she fetches him in for, one presumes, a happy ending.

Even by Griffith's often sentimental standards, this one is overly sentimental. Nor, unhappily, are the actors up to making the conditions very interesting. Blanche Sweet keeps her eyes closed when she is blind. Charles West acts arthritic. At times while watching this I thought it might actually be an early Mack Sennett picture, given that Fred Mace has the role of West's employer, but,, no, apparently everyone is dead serious about this one.
