What Drink Did (1909)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Another Griffith drama showing the abuse of alcohol. A man goes out drinking with his buddies while his family waits for him at home. When he finally goes home he's drunk and abusive but this doesn't stop him from going back to drink. This is a good film but my God did Griffith go way, way, way over the top in trying to get his message across. The over-dramatic situation at the end almost wants to make you laugh. Mary Pickford makes an early (and brief) appearance here.

Violin Maker of Cremona, The (1909)

** (out of 4)

Griffith short about a violin contest where the winner gets to marry a young girl (Mary Pickford). Here's another failed attempt at comedy from the director. I've seen around six or seven of these comedies and he just doesn't seem comfortable.
