Deconstructing Griffith - A Girl and Her Trust (1912)
Griffith worked without a script, and editing was an evolving skill. The dramatic closeups are, nonetheless, quite striking, and the use of a railroad engine as a featured player guarantees that the pacing will seem accelerated.
Created as a tutorial for the Cinematics class at Kalamazoo Valley Community College.
