The Passer-by1912

Throughout his life, a man is periodically haunted by the woman who deserted him on the eve of their wedding. One critic declared this film "an impressive story of a blighted life." Moving Picture World (a trade magazine of the era) applauded this picture for its script, the performance by Marc MacDermott and its cinematography. "There is some clever camerawork in the dinner scene when the machine is gradually pushed toward the speaker at the head of the table and then withdraws. The effect, of course, is that of the actor being drawn toward the spectator and then receding." By this time, intertitles have begun to supply the names of the lead actors.
