Cupid's Pranks
First screened in December 2018
Director: J. Searle Dawley. Cast: Violette Hill, Marie Murray, Laura Sawyer, with a literal blink-and-you-miss-him cameo from D.W. Griffith.

Twitter Capsule: Proof that comedies were running too long way before Judd Apatow. Fun, crafty bits. Not every arrow hits a target.

VOR:   Cool to see how Dawley was adapting photographic tricks for so many genres and tones. The best part is the unresolved disarray at the end.
