Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Black Heart was the second of three Pathe productions released back-to-back-to-back during the week of November 19, 1910. The story concerns a scheming villain, who lets nothing get in the way of his villainous schemes. If this description seems repetitious, it is keeping in spirit with the film itself, which made the same points over and over throughout its 10-minute running time. According to the trade magazine Variety, the film's dull stretches were enlivened by Pathe's patented color-tinting process. Of the aforementioned trio of Pathe releases, Black Heart was reportedly the weakest of the batch.
