| Surprisingly enough entertaining
It is very interesting to see Lionel Barrymore in an early role. This film is one D.W. Griffith's best shorts equipped with good acting, humor, suspense, and crime. It starts off introducing you to a little girl and her sick mother. The Miser is introduced when he gives the little girl some bread. Lionel Barrymore is Jules, the thief who is forced to leave town by the Police. Not being able to resist the temptation Jules steals bread on his way out of town. He hides on a roof, soon accompanied by the little girl. Taking a liking to the girl Jules gives the girl some bread, not realizing the dangerous situation the girl will soon be in. A MUST see for all film buffs or Lionel Barrymore fans.
