Excellent Crime Film
The Evidence of the Film (1913)

**** (out of 4)

Excellent Thanhouser film has a broker stealing $20,000 from a person who demands it back. He sets up a plot to where it seems like a messenger boy is delivering the money but he actually swaps out the envelope, which leads the boy into trouble. What neither of them expected was a film crew to be on the scene.

THE EVIDENCE OF THE FILM is without question one of the studios greatest films. Considering over eight hundred of their films are currently lost, it's hard to go out on a limb and call it the greatest but it's certainly an important film that mixed drama and crime with movies playing an important part in the story. What makes this film so special is that it actually gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the Thanhouser editing room, which is great to see today. Another strong aspect is that the story itself is quite clever even though the title of the film pretty much gives away the ending. Still, there's no question that this is a rather important one and an excellent one at that.
