This early D.W. Griffith short shows the director's interest in Jewish ghetto life, portrayed here with sympathy and sentimentality. The melodramatic plot involves the conflict between generations in an immigrant Jewish family.

The 33 Year Old D.W. Griffith
31 October 2003 | by Single-Black-MaleSee all my reviews

This stark drama was released in October 1908 (four months into Griffith's directorial debut) and presented a harsh vision of urban life. It is a social problem film lasting 11 minutes, and is at the centre of Progressive-era urban reform.
