Dueling Johns
14 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

In the sting of the Civil War, mothers and sweethearts must wait and worry as their sons and lovers go off to the front. Forthwith, a Southerner named John (Edwin August) goes off to fight for the Confederacy. Meanwhile, a Northerner named John (Edward Dillon) goes off to fight for the Union. Naturally, the two opposing soldiers named John have a mother (Kate Bruce or Clara T. Bracey) and a sweetheart (Dorothy West or Lucy Cotton) waiting for their safe return. As fate would have it, the Johns meet on the battlefield, and one shoots the other. Later, Mr. August (of the Union) finds himself alone and pursued; the only refuge is the home belonging to Ms. Bruce, mother of the Confederate officer he shot. Thinking first as a mother, she hides "The Fugitive". Then, her wounded son is brought home! A nice idea, but rather slightly told, from director D.W. Griffith.

*** The Fugitive (11/7/10) D.W. Griffith ~ Edwin August, Edward Dillon, Kate Bruce
