The 35 Year Old D.W. Griffith
31 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This was the first picture that was begun and completed out west. The old Spanish San Gabriel Mission served as a location for this film, and added a romantic touch to the story. Because the church was dim, Griffith had to use his backlighting practice.
