Courage of the Commonplace, The (1913)

** (out of 4)

Vitagraph short about a farmer's daughter who works her butt off and never really gets anything out of it. She dreams of one day going to college and finally gets her shot but something bad happens on the farm, which might cause her to stay home. This is a well meaning short but it's also very slow and rather boring. The ending was certainly the highlight.

Crime of Carelessness, The (1913)

** (out of 4)

Edison short about a happy couple about to be married but the guy's carelessness at their workplace leads to tragedy. This film was inspired by the 1911 event where a factory caught fire and 146 workers were killed. With that in mind, this short was meant to show safety issues and on that level it works but the story of the couple is so over dramatic that it's hard sitting through the 14-minute running time. Barry O'Moore and Mabel Trunnell play the couple and neither are too impressive in their roles.
