Storyline

In a little village there lived two families who were almost lifetime neighbors and friends. In the one family there was a boy, in the other, a girl. These two had been sweethearts from childhood and each found happiness in the other's company. All was sunshine for Dave, the boy, until the day of the church lawn party, when the nephew of the minister arrived from college. His easy manners and good clothes make an impression on the unsophisticated girl, and it is with slight persuasion she consents to elope with him that evening. The result is the inevitable, for the man proves to be a scapegrace. Meanwhile, the girl, through pride, pretends in her letters home to be doing well. Dave, however, has his misgivings and decides to pay them a visit. The result of this visit is a startling revelation. Later the girl is made to realize faithful Dave's true worth.

Not One of Griffith's Best
20 June 2008 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Blind Love (1912)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

D.W. Griffith short has a young woman (Blanche Sweet) leaving her husband for another man thinking that this other man will bring more excitement to her life. After a while the woman, now with a child, realizes that she was wrong and tries to go back to her husband. This is another moral lesson from Griffith as the film tries to tell women to stick by their husbands no matter what. The film is a little hard to follow as there aren't any title cards to set anything up. It also seems like Griffith really wasn't too involved in the making because there really isn't any of his classic touches. The film runs just over nine-minutes and goes by pretty fast but the director has certainly done much better work. Sweet does a good job with her role.
