The House of Cards1909

  • 2.0
THE HOUSE OF CARDS is designed to culminate in a confrontation between a sheriff ("Rattlesnake Jim") and a man who has gambled away someone else's money. Both love the same woman and they stage a duel where the victor will be determined by a rattlesnake. The movie critic for the New York Dramatic Mirror found the situation unbelievable and contrived even though other aspects of the film impressed him. Variety, however, was enthusiastic about this picture, finding that "the story holds interest and the novelty of introducing a rattlesnake as an actor must be credited to this film." Judge for yourself. The film is occasionally attributed to Edwin S. Porter (as director and screenwriter) but there is no definitive source that corroborate these details.
