Curses! They Remarked (1914)

** (out of 4)

This Keystone film was clearly the studio trying to capture the mood and spirit of a D.W. Griffith "suspense" picture. A crooked father and son team (Chester Conklin, Frank Opperman) learn of a rich woman (Norma Nichols) coming to town so they plan to have the son marry her and get the money. When their plan backfires they end up kidnapping the woman so the hero must try and save her. CURSES! THEY REMARKED features an excellent title but the rest of the film is pretty unmemorable as the film drags on and on to where by the time the climax happens you really don't care if they reach the woman or not. I think film buffs might enjoy watching this for the cast but it's also interesting to view this because it makes you realize how special that great films from Griffith were. It shows that you could just copy something and make it work as pretty much every inch of this thing falls short from even the lower quality Griffith pictures. This is especially obvious during the finale where there's a big chase to try and rescue the woman but here there's not an ounce of suspense.
