The 34 Year Old D.W. Griffith
30 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This film was an inevitable disappointment to audiences, primarily because it was an original piece rather than an adaptation. Griffith is on safe territory when he is adapting work for the screen because that is what cinema is designed for. Original pieces of work only succeed later on in Hollywood's history.
