In "Dream Street," David Wark
Griffith has achieved what a lot of
New York critics have been assum
ing this season to be well-nigh im
possible. He has dramatized a story
of goodness nnd light and happi
ness in conflict with wickedness and
darkness and despair, against n
background in which tho forces of
darkness had nil the best of it and
he has made goodness and happiness
the victor and has given, at the same
time, a tremendously artistic produc
tion. It is a sweeping answer to the
people who have argued that in a
story in which it looked as though
happiness was doomed, it must be
doomed, or elso the drama misses
tho fire of realism and art. "Dream
