Mary Pickford Mends the Nets
5 October 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Pretty fisherman's daughter Mary Pickford works by the seashore, mending the local seafarers' fishing nets. Tall, dark, and handsome Charles West is taken with her dreamy beauty, and proposes to Mary. She happily accepts his ring. The young couple celebrate their betrothal with a tender kiss. But, all is not well...

Old girlfriend Mabel Normand has given Charles her virginity, and thought she would be taking him to the alter. After learning she has been cast aside, Mabel interrupts Charles' dalliance with Mary, and asks him why she is "not good enough." Meanwhile, Mabel's brother overhears the drama, and decides he must defend her honor…

This short drama is strengthened by the directorial storytelling strength of D.W. Griffith, working with erstwhile cameraman G.W. Bitzer. They use the rocky shoreline of Santa Monica, California very effectively. As usual, the movement of water and wind add to the excitement on screen. "The Mender of Nets" is one of several lyrical seafaring shorts produced by Mr. Griffith at "Biograph". With two future superstars handling the feminine leads, the cast is certainly notable. The subject matter was a staple.

***** The Mender of Nets (2/15/12) D.W. Griffith ~ Mary Pickford, Charles West, Mabel Normand, Charles Hill Mailes
