Storyline

Each night, after the day's work at the factory, the three bachelor friends met and declared anew their attachment over a social glass. They bound themselves to remain thus as long as life might last, never to marry. But one was a traitor, while the other two were called away. A widened breach, a quarrel, fanned the resentment, but true friendship at last claimed its own. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The 38 Year Old D.W. Griffith
7 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Although the storyline is not engaging for the modern viewer, the technical aspects of the film and the cast (Lionel Barrymore) drawn upon are significant. Even before Cecil B. DeMille came on the scene, D.W. Griffith was advancing technically and artistically in Hollywood with 'Three Friends'.
