by G. W. “Billy” Bitzer for American Mutoscope and Biograph Co.
“Bitzer’s cinematography was famous for the expressive realism it added to D. W. Griffith’s films. Before those he shot hundreds of others, this being one of his best. Gliding through space, the camera and lights suddenly halt when something jams the overhead crane. Everyone freezes; the excitement is palpable.” —Bruce Posner
