Description by OLDIES.com:
D.W. Griffith (1880-1948) has been heralded as the first major American film director and an inventor of the devices of cinematic montage. His movies, including Birth of a Nation (1915) and Intolerance (1916), are still watched today, not only for their crucial place in film history but also for their grand story-telling and emotional power. This illustrated monograph traces Griffith's rise from an obscure actor/poet to the most imaginative and resourceful film director and producer of his time. Reprint of 1940 monograph.
