D.W. Griffith’s Birth of A Nation (1915) Lillian Gish, America (1924) Carol Dempster + John Wayne, Red Skelton $9.99 FREE ship



The Birth of a Nation (originally called The Clansman) is a 1915 American silent drama film directed by D. W. Griffith and based on the novel and play The Clansman, both by Thomas Dixon, Jr. Griffith co-wrote the screenplay (with Frank E. Woods), and co-produced the film (with Harry Aitken). It was released on February 8, 1915. The film was originally presented in two parts, separated by an intermission.
The film chronicles the relationship of two families in Civil War and Reconstruction-era America: the pro-Union Northern Stonemans and the pro-Confederacy Southern Camerons over the course of several years. The assassination of President Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth is dramatized.

The film was a commercial success, but was highly controversial owing to its portrayal of African-American men (played by white actors in blackface) as unintelligent and sexually aggressive towards white women, and the portrayal of the Ku Klux Klan (whose original founding is dramatized) as a heroic force.

There were widespread protests against The Birth of a Nation, and it was banned in several cities. The outcry of racism was so great that Griffith was inspired to produce Intolerance the following year.

The film is also credited as one of the events that inspired the formation of the "second era" Ku Klux Klan at Stone Mountain, Georgia, in the same year. The Birth of a Nation was used as a recruiting tool for the KKK.

Under President Woodrow Wilson, it was the first motion picture to be shown at the White House.

Despite the film's controversial content, Griffith's innovative film techniques make it one of the most important and influential films in the commercial film industry.

It is also one of the most commercially successful films of all time.






“America" is a silent 1924 classic “historical war romance film” which portrays the heroic events during the Revolutionary war created by D. W. Griffith and adapted from Robert W. Chambers’ novel The Reckoning.  (Griffith subtitle: Love & Sacrifice)

The plot mainly centers itself on the battles of the New York State with romance sliced into the individual movie scenes.

Starring Carol Dempster, Neil Hamilton
Directed & Produced by D. W. Griffith
Written by Robert W. Chambers
Cinematography, G. W. Bitzer, Marcel Le Picard, Hendrik Sartov, Harold S. Sintzenich
Editing by James Smith, Rose Smith
Studio: D. W. Griffith Productions
Distributed by United Artists
Release date: February 21, 1924
Runninbg time: 214 minutes

Criticism ~ The film’s climax was very original and thrilling, as in most other Griffith films, complete with action and exciting stunts in the rescue scenes. However, film critics described the motion picture as lacking in modernity of the time. The movie was unlike the other films of the time at its original release.

The story did not quite fit together as a whole and the order of which scenes were presented in was very confusing to follow, but was rather effective in individual scenes. The usage of title captions was also criticized.

There would be a block of text explaining motifs and character relationships rather than having the characters display them through their acting, which is not made clear on screen.

Reception ~ America did not spark itself onto the audience as well as Griffith’s previous films did. It is possible that the director had trouble differentiating between the colonists and British, since they both held origins to Great Britain. The audience is not clearly shown who are the antagonists and the protagonists. In addition, the movie’s time frame was not rational.[4] The film’s time period made for a very long romance for Nancy and Holden before they could actually be together, since the first scenes were in 1775, but concluded in 1789. Its failure was perplexing, despite heavy promotion, considering Griffith spent over a million dollars on the production.

Griffith used many popular movie actors at the time, but he felt that there was no need for them to play the roles in his films, and could not afford most of them anyway, after they began to consume nearly all of his money in expensive productions.

As a result, Lillian Gish, who acted in a well known film of his, “Orphans of the Storm,” departed him after he could not pay any more for her services and left him with Carol Dempster who had far less appeal than Gish. She showed very little on-camera allure with Neil Hamilton and only good with reaction scenes and had limited facial expressions.

The film was not completely useless to Griffith, but he was still in debt with massive amounts of money and did not receive that boost of attention he was hoping for.

The film was given a limited release in select theatres, including the Castro Theatre in San Francisco, in April 1996, and then shown on cable channel HBO.
