D.W. Griffith

Today is the anniversary of the death in 1948 of D.W. Griffith. We have seen Birth of a Nation, Intolerance (some of us have seen more of it than others), and I have seen Broken Blossoms (embedded at that link). I've seen Abraham Lincoln, but it was very long ago and I don't really remember it.

PBS has a section on Griffith in their American Masters programs. Senses of Cinema has an article and a few links. CinemaWeb has a chapter on him from a 1922 book by Peter Milne. has a page here.
