Despite topics matter that held some potential, this short drama never gets off the ground, due to technique that is not nice at all, even by 1905 standards. There were already plenty of details by this time that had said relatively involved stories with enough feature and care that they still keep up even after a century has passed. This one was probably a bit too ambitious, and nothing that they did was able to salvage it.The storyline is about the notorious Hatfield-McCoy feud, and it tries to follow the feud from its beginning onward. That's certainly a subject that provides plenty of dramatic material, but even in the first stage it does not work out very well. The characters are impossible to distinguish one from another, and given the story, that is a crucial weakness. Much of the action is either illogical or otherwise difficult to follow.Only after repeat viewings can you understand everything that is going on. It does have a fair amount of detail, but you shouldn't have to go to so much problem in order to appreciate it.The only thing that keeps you aware of what you are seeing is the game cards, which announce in some feature every stage or tableau. You everytime wish to be charitable towards these very early films, but in this case, the games by themselves would have made a better quality movie.One thing that this does accomplish is to demonstrate just how much skill goes into making even a easy movie. The settings in themselves are believable, and the actors perform the actions requested of them, but it's just not that good. It makes you appreciate much more those movies of 1900-1905 that do work well.
Looking at a Biograph storyline picture before D.W. Griffith came on the stage is a revelation as to what a difference he made to the American film. Folks in the films *did* act by waving their hands about. With a several notable exceptions -- notably the pictures shot by Billy Bitzer -- the action took zone all over the frame, and sometimes just outside it, depending on events.SPOILER ALERTTake this picture. It supposedly shows the happenings of the Hatfield-McCoy feud in graphic and comprehensive form. What it shows it folks rushing about and falling down. Consider a typical title. "Sally McCoy Goes to the Hatfield House to Warn Her Lover, Jim Hatfield. Old Boy McCoy Follows Her and is Shot by One of the Hatfields." What action do we then see? A carriage disgorges half a dozen weeping folks and drives on. Then a previously unknown girl in a huge hat shows up. She is met by a previously unknown man. They grapple. Perhaps they are kissing, perhaps they are Indian Wrestling. Other boy rides up on a horse and gestures, like a cop saying someone to transport along. The two separate and he continues to gesticulate. Perhaps he wants folks to transport faster, perhaps the flies are bothering him. Then he falls off his horse, lies still and folks rush up to poke at him.This sort of 'semi-animated text' would go out of style under the influence of Griffith and his successors. Griffith would continue to test games to describe the general action, a sort of "chapter title" but the action would say the story. Thank goodness.
