The Professor dispenses the wisdom of the ages and does not make a living wage. The sons of the rich and powerful are students lacking any motivation. The next door neighbor of the Professor, businessman Olsen, has money and lots of food, while the Griggs have hardly any. Both Peter Olsen and Reverend Gates are taken by the beauty of young Amelia Griggs. When rich son Phil West falls for Amelia Griggs and befriends the poor Reverend Gates, he finally sees the difference in his life and theirs and tries to do something to change that. Written by

After all the hype I had read about this film I was expecting a whole lot more, but truthfully it was a dud. I was so bored I actually fell asleep during segments and barely made it to the end without looking like Rip Van Winkle. There is no chemistry between the actors, the plot is dry as toast, and we are supposed to be impressed just because a woman directed this tripe? Sorry, count me out.
Don't waste your time. If you want to watch a compelling film about small town life in America watch Way Down East with Lillian Gish or Hail The Woman with Florence Vidor. Both those films have a spiritual aspect to them that increase their poignancy. "The Blot" was just a Blob.
