Griffith
Drunkard's Reformation, The (1909)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

An alcoholic father returns home, abuses his wife and then has his daughter ask him to take her to a play. The father, not wanting to, goes ahead with his daughter to the play, which turns out to be about an alcoholic. Griffith's father was destroyed by alcohol so this would be a topic to many of his shorts. Griffith gets his message across very nicely and again, needless to say, the editing between the father and the play makes the film.

You can find this film on Grapevine's D.W. Griffith: The Director series.
