Patten of Chicago had six months earlier cornered the wheat commodities market. <em>The Biograph Bulletin,</em> a printed chronicle of production at the Biograph Company, makes the following comment in the notes for <em>A Corner in Wheat,</em> production 3646, in 1909: “No subject has ever been produced more timely than this powerful story of the wheat gambler, coming as it does when agitation is rife against that terrible practice of cornering commodities that are the necessities of life. Laws are being framed with a view of suppressing such nefarious transactions, and no more convincing argument could be shown than that set forth in this picture.”</p> <div id="attachment_19872" style="width: 360px" class="wp-caption alignleft"><a href="https://www.moma.org/explore/inside_out/inside_out/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Millet.Sower_.jpg"><img class="size-full wp-image-19872" title="Jean-François Millet.

The cycle continues season after season until some element breaks down. In Griffith’s film, he takes a radical stand and kills off the cavalier wheat gambler in one of the grain elevators. The gambler’s hubris and disregard for the despicable rise in wheat prices is punished when he slips and falls into one of the sorting shafts and is suffocated by the tons of wheat that bury him alive. The next day at dawn on the farm, the farmer suits up and slings his basket of seeds across his back and begins his grueling walk sowing in the fields. Griffith and his cameraman G. W. “Billy&#8221; Bitzer even recreated a tableaux vivant of the Jean-François Millet painting <em>The Sower</em> (1850) as the valiant farmer walks his property.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <div id="attachment_19881" style="width: 246px" class="wp-caption alignright"><a href="https://www.moma.org/explore/inside_out/inside_out/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Patten1.jpg"><img class=" wp-image-19881 " title="Portrait of James A.

Patten. 1920. Photographer: L. Fowler</p></div> <p>The real wheat gambler, James A. Patten, was born in Illinois in 1852 and died in 1928. As an employee of the Illinois State Department of Grain Inspection in the mid-1870s, Patten learned the complexities of the grain and commodities industries. He was the mayor of Evanston, Illinois from 1901 to 1905 and became an infamous figure on the American business circuit in 1909 when it is alleged that he was in control of more than 20 million bushels of the American wheat crop. This huge acquisition naturally forced up the prices of wheat, flour, and bread. As a by-product of Patten’s business practices, mills were forced to close, workers were laid off and, with their wages curtailed, could not afford the rising cost of bread. Using a shrewd method of selling off his holdings to buyers in far-flung locations across the United States and demanding immediate payment and possession, Patten managed to keep prices high while quietly liquidating his assets. Wheat remained scarce, and in large cities the price of a loaf of bread rose from 5¢ to 10¢. Once divested of his wheat holdings, the price collapsed but Patten profited handsomely, earning nearly $5 million during May 1909. (In 2012 dollars that translates to about $120 million.) As in the film <em>A Corner in Wheat</em> in which we see an unrepentant gambler, Patten forged ahead and attempted to corner the cotton market. By this time, the commodities markets were aware of his dishonorable practices and he was not successful. James A. Patten’s reach extended beyond the United States, with business concerns in Liverpool, England. When he visited the Manchester Commodities exchange in 1911 his appearance caused a riot to ensue. Patten was notorious and egocentric—if he were alive today, he would probably be cast on a reality TV show.</p> <p>Historians speculate that Griffith was probably familiar with the popular Norris literary works that predate the production of <em>A Corner in Wheat </em>by several years, but was reminded of them and their similarity to Patten when his story exploded in the press. When you combine Frank Norris’s social commentary, James A. Patten’s deceptions, and D. W. Griffith’s dramatic cinematic style, you have an enduring paradigm illustrating that financial greed and hubris are not a modern day phenomena.</p> <p><em>A Corner in Wheat</em> and three other D. W. Griffith short films are currently on view on the fifth floor of the Museum.</p> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CMbO7HIsvY">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CMbO7HIsvY</a> <div class="clear"></div> </div> <!--googleoff: index--> <p class="sub-nav"> <span class="blog-tags featured-tags"> Tags: <span class="all-tags"> <a href="/explore/inside_out/tag/film" title="Posts tagged film (341)">film</a>, <a href="/explore/inside_out/tag/d-w-griffith" title="Posts tagged D.

Good to know there was a time when he properly had a finger on the pulse of the nation, and not just apologetically.</p> <p>Also fascinated to see the wheat gambler suffocated in a flow of grain &#8211; I&#8217;m instantly reminded of Peter Weir&#8217;s Witness, in which one of the crooked cops is dispatched of the same way (and indeed an episode of the Superman TV show Smallville, which recycled the same gruesome technique). I wonder if Weir or his writers were familiar with this film.</p> <p class="byline gray-type">Posted by David Neary</p> </div> <div id="comment56304" class="comment"> <a name="comment56304"></a> <div class="date"><a href="#comment56304"><small>March 15, 2012, 11:51 p.m.</small></a></div> <p>Any way to find out if Weir had seen Corner? I think it was the character of Fergie, played by Angus MacInnes, who was killed in the silo. It was one of the most violent deaths on film &#8211; made more horrifying by the fact that it was perpetrated by tons of inanimate grain.</p> <p class="byline gray-type">Posted by Deborah Liebman</p> </div> <div id="comment56515" class="comment"> <a name="comment56515"></a> <div class="date"><a href="#comment56515"><small>March 17, 2012, 4:17 p.m.</small></a></div> <p>The same thing is happening today with oil.

I didn&#8217;t know the film, but I often taught the Frank Norris story with the ironic suffocation. Doubtless Griffith had to have known the story and The Octopus as well. I can imagine an oil oligarch being consumed on a leaky oil rig and a Wall Streeter suffocating in a vault full of worthless mortgage papers.</p> <p class="byline gray-type">Posted by Tom McHaney</p> </div> <form id="commentform" method="post" action="http://moma.org/wp/inside_out/api?json=submit_comment" class="JS_CommentForm"> <input type="hidden" name="post_id" value="19868" /> <input type="hidden" name="redirect" value="https://www.moma.org/explore/inside_out/2012/03/15/a-corner-in-wheat#commentform" /> <h2>Leave a Comment</h2> <div id="add-comment" class="comment"> <div class="response hidden"></div> <div class="required float-right">* required information</div> <div class="name">Name<span class="red-type">*</span></div> <input name="name" type="text" size="22" id="name" value="" /> <br class="clear" /> <div class="name">E-mail address<span class="red-type">*</span></div> <input name="email" type="text" size="22" id="email" value="" /> <br class="clear" /> <!-- <div class="name">Follow up</div> <input name="" id="subscribe" type="checkbox" tabindex="5" /> <label for="subscribe">Notify me of further comments on this post</label> <br class="clear" />--> <div class="name">Your comments<span class="red-type">*</span></div> <textarea name="content" rows="7" cols="50" id="content"></textarea> <br class="clear" /> <div id="captcha"> <input name="captcha_challenge" type="hidden" value="73367" /> <div class="name">Spam check<span class="red-type">*</span></div> <div class="input"> <img alt="Cri_221521" longdesc="&lt;a href=&quot;http://moma.org/collection/browse_results.php?object_id=73367&quot;&gt;&lt;i&gt;Annie&lt;/i&gt;&lt;/a&gt;. 1969.
