  • A Cure for Pokeritis est un court métrage muet américain réalisé par Laurence Trimble et sorti en 1912. Cette comédie met en scène John Bunny et Flora Finch dans les rôles de George et Mary Brown. Après la mort de John Bunny, le film est réédité avec pour titre alternatif A Sure Cure for Pokeritis. Le film raconte l'histoire d'une femme qui fait perdre à son mari l'habitude des jeux d'argent, grâce à l'intervention de son cousin : celui-ci effectue une fausse descente de police sur le lieu où se tient la partie de poker hebdomadaire du mari. Il s'agit d'un des nombreux courts-métrages du même type produits par la Vitagraph Company of America et qui ont fait de John Bunny et Flora Finch des stars du cinéma. Bien que son humour soit démodé, A Cure for Pokeritis est emblématique du genre comique et du cinéma des années 1910. (fr)
  • A Cure for Pokeritis è un film del 1912 diretto da Laurence Trimble. Con protagoniste le star del cinema John Bunny e Flora Finch, il cortometraggio è una comica domestica che vede una donna architettare uno stratagemma per guarire l'azzardopatia del marito. Prodotto dalla Vitagraph, fu distribuito nei cinema statunitensi dalla General Film Company il 23 febbraio 1912. Nel 1917 fu rieditato col titolo A Sure Cure for Pokeritis. Il film fu uno dei primi sforzi per andare oltre le convenzioni di blocco teatrale. Durante il raid della polizia, la profondità viene dimostrata facendo svolgere l'azione sia in primo piano che sullo sfondo, e permettendo agli attori di muoversi tra di essi. Questa tecnica cinematografica migliorava il realismo e il ritmo della scena. Il 7 maggio 2002 il film fu incluso nella raccolta DVD Slapstick Encyclopedia (uscita solo nell'America del Nord). Nel 2011 è stato selezionato per la conservazione nel National Film Registry della Biblioteca del Congresso come rappresentante "culturalmente, storicamente o esteticamente significativo" delle comiche con i due protagonisti, chiamate solitamente "Bunnygraphs" o "Bunnyfinches".
