What: A hilarious silent film by D.W. Griffith (of Birth of a Nation fame). Spoiler below.

Who: Stars Lillian and Dorothy Gish.

Plot: Two twins left orphans are far from penniless and their comically evil maid and her, boyfriend? lover? friend? try to take the money out of their safe.

Particulars: The maid locks the orphans in a room and points a gun through a hole in the wall at them.

You can tell the maid is evil because she drinks.

Result: The girls are saved by a friend of theirs after they call him by telephone.

Humor: It is goofy and stupid in that silent film way.

Rating: 8 of 10 for being less racist than other D.W. Griffith films.

For: BQ07
