Storyline

Calumny is one of the most despicable crimes against our neighbor, and while the wife in this story acted conventionally, she nevertheless maligned the other woman simply because of her profession, an actress. While out on a shopping tour, the wife and her husband enter a store, leaving their little child in the auto in the care of the chauffeur. This gentleman pays but scant attention to the child, so the little one wanders off and strolls into the stage door of a theater during the matinee. The parents upon their return to the auto discover the child's absence and trace him to the theater stage, where they find him in the arms of one of the show girls. The mother matches the child from the girl's arms, scornfully exclaiming, "How dare you contaminate my child with your touch?" For this remark, together with the derisive laughter it occasions, the girl vows to be avenged. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The 19 Year Old Lillian Gish
14 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In 'Two Daughters of Eve' where Lillian Gish gets to act alongside D.W. Griffith, Griffith chooses Gish as his representative of the American woman during the teens. This was her training grounds before her big part in 'The Birth of a Nation'.
