Mae Marsh the Star
25 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Odd little melodrama written by D.W. Griffith but directed by Lloyd Ingraham for Fine Arts (which I guess was part of Triangle Pictures).

Mae Marsh plays Hoodoo Ann, an orphan girl born on Friday the 13th and seemingly jinxed. A servant foretells that all her life she will be cursed. She's always in trouble because of her nemesis, Goldie (Mildred Harris), who is a favorite at the orphanage. But after the orphanage burns (a great scene) and Ann saves Goldie she is adopted and gets to start a new life. She also meets Jimmie (Robert Harron).

The courtship is sweet and simple as suits the times, and there is a very funny spoof of "pictures" when the lovers go to see Pansy Thorne in her latest movie, a melodrama that boasts hideous acting. But Ann is very impressed and tries to dress and act like the movie actress. She is rummaging through an attic trunk when she finds a gun. It accidentally goes off. She traces the bullet through a door and into a neighbor's house, where the husband is missing.

Ann thinks she shot him and he dragged himself off to die (like the man in the movie). It seems her curse will never be lifted. But he shows up a few days later and the lovers are free to marry. The title cards tell us that the marriage will end her hoodoo.

Marsh is quite good as the unlucky girl and has a few terrific scenes and some really ugly clothes. Harron has little to do. Harris is good as peevish Goldie (in real life she was married to Charlie Chaplin. Co-stars include Anna Dodge (billed as Anna Hernandez), Loyola O'Connor, Elmo Lincoln, and the bizarre Madame Sul-Te-Wan as Black Cindy.

Neat little silent film at 65 minutes and with a good clean print.
