Gets Pretty Good Mileage Out of a Simple Situation
There is some good suspense in "Death's Marathon", a short drama that gets pretty good mileage out of a simple but tense situation. Henry B. Walthall and Blanche Sweet make significant contributions, along with D.W. Griffith's story-telling ability and a supporting cast that features some other names familiar to silent film fans.

The initial premise, of a woman who must choose between two different men, is quite familiar, even routine, but the story uses it more creatively than most movies would do. After introducing us to the main characters and their relationships, one of them becomes desperate, pushing the others into a race against time which is made more memorable by all that we know about them.

Although there are no especially creative touches, most of it is done with care, and this is a pretty good, if old-fashioned, drama.
