Summary
  • The house with closed shutters : "'The man who invented Hollywood, ' D.W. Griffith, had over 100 shorts to his credit by the time he directed The house with closed shutters. His refined technique propels the action forward cinematically, with very few intercards needed. This production features some of his first large scale Civil War battle scenes which would figure so promiently in his 1915 masterpiece, The birth of a nation"--Container
  • An unseen enemy : "This historic short features the debut motion picture appearance of legends Lillian and Dorothy Gish. A reprehensible maid plots to steal the inheritance of orphaned sisters"--Container
  • The musketeers of Pig Alley : Rival gangs shoot it out in the back streets of New York in America's first mobster picture. Griffith's vivid depiction of the teeming immigrant streets of the Lower East Side and dramatic use of cutting and close-ups to build extreme tension before the climactic explosion of violence, set a template still used today"--Container
  • Love loot & crash : "A crook dresses in drag to land a maid job, in his effort to rob a banker's house. A Mack Sennett classic featuring a 21 year old Charley Chase and uncredited pratfalls by future star Harold Lloyd as the Italian fruit vendor"--Container
