In the Grip of Alcohol (1911) Short, Drama · 15 December 1911
The greatest moral dilemma ever made by any film manufacturer. It throbs and pulsates with human interest! It awakens fathers to the possible dangers to their sons! It arouses the latent will power in those unfortunates who have become addicted to drink. It paints the terrors of the fatal downward path in a manner which no one can ignore. It shows no brutality, just the awful spectacle of the drink evil. It follows his life for eight years; eight years of slow death for him; eight years of hardship and deprivation for his little sick daughter; eight years of self-torture, loss of self-respect, the attainment of self-loathing, all because drink is what it is and because a man hadn't the backbone to say, "NO!" This picture supplies the backbone. - Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
