Ben Cook had been a man of intelligent energy, but meeting with reverses, went the way of so many others, that is, became addicted to drink. Falling lower and lower, we first see him a drunken loafer. In return for his wife's tearful entreaties he gives abuse, and finally desertion; leaving his native town for parts unknown. Landing in a strange village, he seeks and obtains employment in a sawmill, where he resolves to brace up. Meanwhile, his poor wife, learning from her husband's companions of his flight, becomes unbalanced in mind, and taking up her little three-year-old child, starts out in search of him. On she wanders, cold and hungry, meeting a kindhearted Italian on the way, who compassionately gives her an old shawl to wrap about the child. Further on she falls exhausted beside a haystack. Here the hallucination of hearing her husband's voice calling seizes her and she leaves the child to go in answer to the imagined call. The child is found later by an old farmer, who adopts it. The poor woman staggers on until she falls helpless in the road. She is found by a benevolent couple who take her in and care for her, she performing light housework in return for their kindness. Years later Cook, through his close application to work, has become manager of the mill, and is enjoying the best of fortune. A search for his deserted wife has proved fruitless, hence he assumed her dead. One day while out in his auto, it becomes temporarily disabled, and he rests up at a farmhouse, where they are celebrating their daughter's eighteenth birthday. The meeting with the daughter incurs mutual love at first sight. Later they are betrothed and the wedding day set. It is now the day of the wedding and Cook is speeding to the house to meet the wedding party when his machine passes the place where his wife has lived all these years. She recognizes him and dashes after him, but, of course, is far distanced. Continuing, she comes to the house shortly after the party, of which she knows nothing, has left. She asks for a drink, and while waiting sees her husband's picture in a frame on the table. To her queries the maid tells her in detail about the little foundling, the adoption, the birthday party, and now of the wedding, which may at this moment be taking place. It is for her the awakening. She realizes the horror of the situation, and asking the direction to the church dashes madly out, hailing a passing wagon, begs the man to drive in haste to it. The ceremony has just begun when she rushes in. Oh God! What a terrible revelation. She has just strength enough to make the truth clear when she falls into her husband's arms dead. Thus, in a flash he is made to feel the weight of the hand of Divine Justice in the horror and mortification of the situation.

Pippa Passes; or, The Song of Conscience

Our story opens with Pippa …
Our story opens with Pippa awakening in her little room with the morning's light pouring through the window, for the "day's at the morn; morning's at seven; the hillside's dew-pearled; the lark's on the wing; the snail's on the thorn; God's in His heaven. All's right with the world." To-day is a holiday in Asolo, the whir of the spindles of the silk mill is silenced and Pippa, the little silk winder, saunters forth with her lute to brighten life's ordeal with song, little realizing what good she is doing. Her song of peace, "God's in His heaven. All's right with the world!" induces faith, hope and charity, faith in God's justice, hope for our welfare, and charity towards mankind. The workman goes to spend his time and earnings at the tavern, neglecting his despairing wife, with their little child, who grieve at home. In the midst of the roistering, Pippa passes, singing her song of peace. The words sink deep into the heart of the workman, and force him to return to his sorrowing wife, with a resolve never to err more. The next episode is that of the marrying of Jules to the Greek model, whom he believes an innocent young girl. Upon learning her true character, Jules would have struck her down, but at that moment Pippa passes, and her song induces him to be charitable and he resolves to save and protect her. Wending her way through the lanes, Pippa approaches the shrub house of Luca, wherein a terrible tragedy is impending. Luca sleeps and his wife, Ottima, is persuading her lover, Sibald, to dispatch him. With upraised dagger, he approaches the couch, and the dagger is about to fall, when Pippa's song is heard. What a transformation. Conscience turns their eyes into their very souls and how black the aspect, "God's in His heaven. All's right with the world!" Are we not of the world? How stand we in the sight of God? What ministering angel art thou, who with song has stayed the hand that would have done irreparable wrong?" Thus has Pippa's song averted a tragedy, Returning to her little room, she retires. "Day's turn is over, now arrives the night's." The golden sunshine fades into silver moonbeams and Pippa sleeps, innocent of the good her peregrinations hare worked.

David Wark Griffith (January 22, 1875 – July 23, 1948) was an American director , writer, and producer who pioneered modern cinematic techniques. He is remembered for The Birth of a Nation (1915) and Intolerance (1916). The Birth of a Nation made use of advanced camera and narrative techniques, and its popularity set the stage for the dominance of the feature-length film in the United States. The film has sparked significant controversy surrounding racism in the United States, focusing on its negative depiction of black people and the glorification of the Ku Klux Klan. Today, it is both acclaimed for its radical technique and condemned for its inherently racist philosophy. The film was subject to boycotts by the NAACP; screenings caused riots at several theaters and it was censored in many cities, including New York City. Intolerance was an answer to his critics.
