D.W. Griffith and Robert Burks, 19 November 2003
Author: Single-Black-Male from London, England

The 33 year old Griffith uses his subjective camera to guide us through this film. The voice of the camera is as subjective as Robert Burks' camera (Vertigo) and allows the audience to participate in the film.

Cecil B. DeMille's future wife, Jeanie Macpherson, appears in this film.
