108 Short Films in One Year

In spite of the fact that this film was only six minutes, it is unbelievable that at the age of 34 D.W. Griffith was churning out on average 2 films (one-reelers) per week. It is the equivalent of writing an Edgar Allan Poe tale as opposed to a Somerset Maugham short story.
