Storyline

Old Ezra Perkins and his wife, Matilda, are induced by the glib-tongued ballyhoo to investigate the mysteries of that famous section of our great metropolis, the Bowery, They are joined by Mr. Reginald Oliver Churchill Wittington, an English gentleman, who was willing in blow his last farthing in order to see the thing to the very limit. Fine for the Boweryites. Away they go on "rubecart" and are soon landed in a Chinatown opium joint. Here they find everything carried on in a conventional fashion, for just before they arrive the occupants are tipped off to get busy, and this act of a little comedy starts in. While there one of the girls pretends to commit suicide. Here is scandal. Reggie is quite perturbed, as is also Ezra and Matilda, and they are quite willing to "give up" handsomely to be allowed to depart, and not be detained as witnesses at the coroner's inquest, flimflam, No. 1. Next a chop suey emporium is visited and by a well-planned bit of business Ezra is made to upset a ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

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

It may not mean anything to you now, but this film is one of the first to have a full shot of two characters. Unbelievable. You don't watch the 33 year old Griffith's early films because you enjoy them, you watch them to see how cinema and editing developed.
