D.W. Griffith and Wagner
13 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

In 'The Hessian Renegades', D.W. Griffith wasn't known for his use of classical music as a score like he did with Wagner in 'The Birth of a Nation'. As Bernard Herrmann was not on the scene as yet, film directors had to rely on classical composers, but Griffith took the cheap option and used the same score again and again.
