The Post-Text of Griffith's Legacy
15 October 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This six minute offering was virtually begging to be remade into a feature length during the after-life of Griffith's work. It's not a particularly entertaining piece of self-contained footage, but it does create a vocabulary for subsequent productions. It's more of a template or blueprint for how films should be made in the future rather than a presentation of entertainment. I would say that this was a skeleton whereby successive writers and directors could add the flesh and muscle to enhance the piece. These short films that the 34 year old D.W. Griffith was making in 1909 were seeds that were being scattered to generate new work rather than being the finished article.
