Trivia

The identities of the two actors playing the title roles are unknown; apparently, they were seasoned theatrical clowns, but never appeared in any other film at Biograph, so must have been considered otherwise unsuitable by director D.W. Griffith. See more »

Griffith's Achilles Heel - Cardboard Characters
23 January 2004 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

There was no degree of enthusiasm about this project that swayed me into thinking that I could believe in the world that the 33 year old D.W. Griffith sets up in this short film. His characters are undeveloped and I am surprised that they paid him to write these projects.
