| Mary Gets into the action
This little short is interesting for showing the evolution of Griffith's film making, Pickford's movement into more active roles, this is her first year and, the character list some of whom were to be part of Mary Pickford's later life.

We all get to see a rare glimpse of the tragic Florence Lawrence - a star at the time but unfortunate events and sickness would lead to her being on the outside and to suicide in 1938. We also have Owen Moore, the man who criticized Mary on her very first visit to biograph, also becoming Mary's first love interest and later, drunken abusive husband.

The ever present, solid and reliable Kate Bruce also appears. Mary gets her little sister Lottie into the scene. Kirkman was to be part of Mary's future life and of course Mac Sennett went on to be a producer - more than 700 movies and acting in 356.

It is a curiosity piece and should be judged on the standards and development of the day and 1909 makes this effort a good one.

The building used in the closing scenes of this film is used in the opening scenes of Willful Peggy 1910.
