Sunday, August 6

(1916) Shopgirl Mary MacLaren, unable to afford a decent pair of shoes on her five-and-dime salary, is tempted by the uninvited advances of a cad, leading to... Weber based it on her experiences as a missionary among young girls in the NYC slums. Plus short Suspense (1913): Weber, starring as a home-alone mother terrorized by a tramp, uses cross-cutting and split-screen action to heighten the title’s claim. Both DCP. Approx. 70 min.


“There is such a thing as being too realistic.”
