| Born Of The Genre Cinema
Possibly , this short 17min. film is first film-noir in history of cinema.There are living in poverty woman (almost fatal) and criminal who's not so bad how seems at first sight.And of cause dark criminal atmosphere of Pig Alley made in film-noir style too.One exception is happy end.But in this case happy end is more unexpected than tragic final.And therefore more interesting even for modern viewer.Excellent Griffith's staff do them job quick and accurate.They all (director,cinematographer,actors...) are good and professional.Nevertheless "The Musketeers of Pig Alley" not for the fans of crime genre.For study of roots(much killings,mystery and shock)better watch Louis Feuillade genius serials(Fantomas,Les Vampires,Judax).
