The lines of demarcation are clearly drawn in the Douglas Fairbanks vehicle Reggie Mixes In. We know that Reggie (Fairbanks) is rich because he's the best-dressed person in the picture. We know that the criminal gang is a criminal gang because of their grimy costumes. And we know that W.E. Lowery is the head of the crooks because he wears a cap and pin-striped jacket. Well, that's the sort of visual shorthand that silent filmmakers had to indulge in. For the record, Reggie Mixes In is all about a millionaire's effort to prove his grit by taking a job as a saloon bouncer. He falls for slum girl Bessie Love, defends her virtue, arranges for her to inherit a fortune, and it's smiles all around at the end.
