Storyline

Set in a tenement boarding house, a lonely confirmed bachelor occupies a room across the hall from a dour spinster. Children run amok in the hallways playing pranks. Believing the bachelor perpetrated one particular prank, the spinster woman enters his room to confront him. She is followed by a neighbor child. Meanwhile, the other children have stolen a scarlet fever quarantine sign and posted it on the bachelor's door. The police, unaware that the quarentine sign is a prank, enforce the confinement. But aided by the sweet disposition of the toddler quarantined with them, the icy relations between spinster and bachelor begin to thaw, . . . Written by Thomas McWilliams <tgm@netcom.com>

Sunbeam, The (1912)

*** (out of 4)

D.W. Griffith film about feuding neighbors and how they are changed by meeting a young girl. As with the majority of Griffith films, this one here has sentimental written all over it but it's still a pretty good story even though you know where it's going. Griffith had done this type of film countless times before 1912 but that doesn't take away any of the heart the director brings to the film.

Available through Image as well as a few online sites. The Image print features a new score and a clear picture.
