Not One of Griffith's Best
Blind Love (1912)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

D.W. Griffith short has a young woman (Blanche Sweet) leaving her husband for another man thinking that this other man will bring more excitement to her life. After a while the woman, now with a child, realizes that she was wrong and tries to go back to her husband. This is another moral lesson from Griffith as the film tries to tell women to stick by their husbands no matter what. The film is a little hard to follow as there aren't any title cards to set anything up. It also seems like Griffith really wasn't too involved in the making because there really isn't any of his classic touches. The film runs just over nine-minutes and goes by pretty fast but the director has certainly done much better work. Sweet does a good job with her role.
