By 1914, D.W. Griffith's studio for two years had been buying scripts from a mysterious writer known as "A. Loos." Griffith already had turned one, The New York Hat, into a hit starring Lionel Barrymore and Mary Pickford. Now he was poised to meet this person he would come to see as one of his closest collaborators and dub "the most brilliant young woman in the world."

In one of the darkest events in human history, the Nazis’ Holocaust efforts were ramped up with the opening of the concentration camps. On the other side of the world, Japan was invading the island nations of the Pacific as they expanded their domain eastward towards the United States.
