Summary
In this acclaimed three-part documentary, celebrated film historians Kevin Brownlow and David Gill tell the proud, sad story of D.W. Griffith. The man who first brought artistry and ambition to the movies, and then, having dragged a reluctant American film industry to international prominence, found it had no more use for him. Includes interviews with people who worked with him, his family and extracts of his work
