As an acquaintance of the extended Sinclair family, I've had the occasion to watch this movie that they had transferred from some old reels in their possession. While it was type of hard to say if what we viewed represented the entirety of the movie, I got the gist of it. I think it lasted around an hour although I stepped out at one point.I am no expert on silent film, but it seemed to be about what one would expect from a movie of the era as far as the acting, scenery, etc. It was a bit over-acted from a modern perspective and of course you have to fill in the blanks since the storyline is said visually with zone cards showing dialogue and storyline line actually and then. For me, it was a bit slow with no audio of any kind, such as melody during the scenes. You should definitely say that territories of the movie had degraded over the years, but some scenes looked as nice as the Charlie Chaplin clips I've seen on TV, etc.Having read the ebook many years ago, it did follow the storyline quite faithfully from what I recall. It had the wedding at the beginning, all the factory work of course, and the meeting of the workers union towards the end. Mr. Sinclair was supposedly involved to a degree in the making of the film and the family was delighted to see their great-grandfather or great-uncle shown at one mission in the film.While I recall the ebook being fairly grotesque and seedy, especially for its time, the film was much less detailed, only hinting at the horrors of the meat factories in its visuals. However, you still knew exactly what was going on. It did paint a sad storyline that one should take as melodramatic if it were not based on current experience. And, it points to hope at the end of the movie.
Somewhat daring and strong items is exploited before the general public, particularly at the psychological moment, when the creator is so active in the socialistic field (see everyday newspapers). Nothing has been spared by the producing company in the method of cost in this picturization to create it equal to the novel itself, or to the dramatic ver which was so universally famous at the time of its production. Owing to the fact that "The Jungle" enjoys a world-wide recognition and has been read by the majority of humanity, a description of the plot seems to be almost superfluous. The novel enjoys the unprecedented distinction of having been translated and printed in seventeen various languages, in every of which it had a record sale. To overcome the decided opposition of those interested in the packing business, so vividly described in the book, many difficulties and obstacles were encountered. The producers were compelled to buy machinery, install it in their own studios and lease stock yards, etc., to receive the real atmosphere. The All-Star Detail Corporation secured an exceptionally powerful cast to depict the story, composed of prominent Broadway players. George Nash, star of "The Gamblers," "Officer 666" and "I'anthea" has the strong role of Jurgis, the head of an immigrant family, a part which seems to have been created for him. Miss Gail Kane, of "Seven Keys to Baldpate" reputation, essays the part of Ona, his sweetheart in Lithuria, and soon his wife in America. Incidentally, Mr. Nash and Miss Kane will co-star tile coming season in the Fresh York production of "The Miracle Man." Among the helping company of "The Jungle" appear such well-known folks as Robert Cumming, Clarence Handyside, R. Payton Gibbs, Maxine Hodges, Alice Marc, Julia Hurley, May McCabe, Ernest Evers ami Nickelas Sinnerella. All the salient points of the storyline have been distinctly and cleverly portrayed. The vivid distinction shown between the employer and the employed and the wide and bridgeless chasm that yawns between the selfish and arrogant rich and the dependent terrible includes much that is of heart interest. The careless and unsanitary ways utilized in the manufacture of canned meats which are sold to the public, is clearly demonstrated and, if true, are diabolical and criminal. The plot is very easy to demonstrate so much, and should be easy followed and understood without sub-titles. The vicissitudes encountered by the struggling immigrant family for a mere existence, beset by persecution and disparagements at all angles, is but an illustration of numberless others in the same condition. Many gripping scenes obtain, especially where Jurgis, after a desperate struggle, flings the foreman into the cattle run of the stock yard. The mob scenes during the strike vs a reduction of 20 per cent in wages, ordered by the packing house magnate, on acc of the extravagance of his family, are cleverly directed and extremely realistic. Mr. Sinclair, the author, appears in the cast in the last reel and is easy recognized. The finale of the storyline is gratifying. Taken as a whole, the picture includes much that is wholesome. The photography is excellent, and the acting and direction are above criticism. - The Moving Picture World, June 20, 1914
