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.
