| Sweet short from Griffith
This Biograph short feature is a well-done story of two cousins and the love in their lives. Oh, and the "cad" who is awaiting his chance to "betray" one of them, if he can. The film provides a showcase for perfect performances by the leads, with Walter Miller a standout as the shy would-be suitor. Despite the occasionally far-fetched story elements, this film shows the kind of entertainment that was wildly popular in its time, and gives us a glimpse of some long-gone outdoor scenery. Griffith's actors, always reliable, are doing what they do best. There is even a touch of humor, from a director certainly not noted for comedy. We need to have this and more Griffith shorts available on DVD.
