Storyline

Irving Robertson, a successful playwright, has just received a message from out of town to witness the initial performance of one of his plays. As he is about to leave, Henderson, the manager, calls to pay a sum due him for royalties. At the same time, Frank Wilson, a friend of the family, drops in. Henderson hands over to Robertson several thousand dollars and departs. He places the money temporarily in his desk and prepares for his journey, excusing himself to Wilson, at the same time begging him to make himself at home, he departs. Now with the family there was employed a French maid, whose carelessness just before this scene, incurred the displeasure of Mrs. Robertson, who discharged her. Wilson is a bank cashier and has fallen into the error of so many of his kind. As his peculations are detected, and well-grounded rumors already rife, he comes to ask the wise counsel of his friends. Robertson having departed, Wilson hesitatingly unburdens his mind to Mrs. Robertson, who, of ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

D.W. Griffith and the Moving Camera
19 November 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

I think Robert Burks (Vertigo) has the 33 year old Griffith to thank for the use of the moving camera. It is in this film that Griffith begins to exploit movement of the two-dimensional medium that is cinema with the three-dimensional matter that is space.
