Blot, The (1921)

Families from opposite ends of the economic scale are drawn together.

DirLois Weber CastPhilip Hubbard , Margaret McWade , Claire Windsor .


D: Lois Weber. Claire Windsor, Louis Calhern, Philip Hubbard, Margaret McWade, Marie Walcamp.

"Earnest, humanistic account of economic barriers between the classes, spotlighting the pretty daughter (Windsor) of a grievously underpaid college professor who is courted by three men, including wealthy, spoiled student Calhern. Meanwhile, the professor's wife has trouble with her nouveau riche immigrant neighbors. Overly melodramatic at times, but still a notable work for its long-ignored director."
