Item Details

Eleanor's catch: A delightful short, directed by and starring Cleo Madison. In this two-reeler, she plays a young city girl dragged into a life of crime by a ne'er-do-well suitor. A terrific surpise ending gives Cleo an early claim to promoting women's equality in the workforce. Hypocrites: Follows parallel stories of an early Christian ascetic and a modern minister. Gabriel is a medieval monk who devotes himself to completing a statue of "Truth," only to be murdered by a mob when his work turns out to be an image of a naked woman. The contemporary Gabriel is pastor of a large urban congregation for whom religion is a matter of appearances, not beliefs. The hypocrisy of the congregation is exposed by a series of vignettes in which the Naked Truth is portrayed by a naked woman, revealing their appetites for money, sex and power.
