The 33 Year Old D.W. Griffith
31 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This stark drama was released in October 1908 (four months into Griffith's directorial debut) and presented a harsh vision of urban life. It is a social problem film lasting 11 minutes, and is at the centre of Progressive-era urban reform.
