Dangerous Hours, an important moment in American cinema
24 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The previous comment could not be more off. Dangerous Hours was incendiary and simplistic. It was more a tract than a film made as a profound social commentary. It was written by C. Gardner Sullivan, the dean of American screenwriters, a man who set the mold for all screenwriters who came after him. Many of Sullivan's scripts are among the most lyric and poignant of the silent period. He did not mess up and make a stupid film. Dangerous Hours was a collaboration between Ince and a number of figures within the American labor movement who saw the film as a way of warning blue collar America about the false promise of Bolshevism. Of course the characters are overdrawn. DUH. Critcizing this film for being unfair to leftists is like criticizing Keaton films for lacking character development or Birth of a Nation because there is no talking. Dangerous Hours is a very well-done film, but must be understood in light of its mission and social context.
