HIS TRUST, subtitled "the faithful devotion and self- sacrifice of an old negro servant," is something of a race-relations precursor to D.W. Griffith's better-known BIRTH OF A NATION. The aforementioned servant is played in blackface, unfortunately, but the character's portrayal might surprise audiences who have historically painted Griffith as an unabashed racist (which he wasn't). Uncharacteristic of the era, a sequel was also released: HIS TRUST FULFILLED (although, more accurately, the films were shot at the same time and should really be thought of as a two-part serial rather than a short and a sequel).
