    This is D.W. Griffith's last film and it's quite good. He already used this subject many years prior to this one in 'What Drink Did' (1909), and it is very typical for Griffith to choose a subject that concerns society, ethics or politics.
    The Struggle clearly demonstrates Griffith's attention to detail, even though he himself was struggling with alcohol. The story may be a bit cliché and simple, but each scene is carefully staged (eg. the props), the atmosphere is very cozy and familiar, the acting is very good, camera angles are effective, the cuts are well placed and the climax is tense and skillfully executed. This fairly limited plot has been turned into a good picture due to its direction. It is a huge step forward compared to Griffith's first talkie, 'Lincoln'.
