The Slave review
Much holding of heads and beseeching the skies in this overlong and overwrought melodrama from D. W. Griffith. It's clearly had more money spent on it for costumes and set design than most Biograph pictures, and is almost twice as long as many of their shorts from that period, but that added length makes it something of a chore to sit through. Missing intertitles doesn't help...
