Among the distinguishing talents of filmmaking pioneer D.W. Griffith was his gift for endowing history with a sense of drama and immediacy. In his rarely-seen 1924 film "America," Griffith focused his astute cinematic eye and proficiency at melodrama on a rousing, grand scale re-creation of the war for independence. Color tinted and mastered from original negative material, this is the most complete version available of Griffith's classic.

Plot Synopsis:

Legendary director D.W. Griffith, who examined the Civil War in THE BIRTH OF A NATION, the French Revolution in ORPHANS OF THE STORM, and numerous historical periods in INTOLERANCE, here looks at the fight for America's independence. The tale focuses on Nathan Holden, a man of torn loyalties. He supports the break from England, but loves a woman whose sympathies lie with the Redcoats. Along the way, Griffith dramatizes historical moments such as the Battle of Lexington and Concord, and Paul Revere's midnight ride.
