Overview

D.W. Griffith is arguably the single most important figure in the history of the American cinema, a pioneering director from the silent era who established and refined the basic grammar of the film medium and changed moviemaking from the mechanical reproduction of staged scenes into a genuine art form with its own distinct aesthetic sensibilities. The Griffith Masterworks Set is a special collection featuring restored versions (with extra material) of four of Griffith's most important features -- The Birth Of A Nation, Intolerance, Broken Blossoms, and Orphans Of The Storm -- as well as a collection of twenty-three short subjects Griffith directed for the Biograph Company between 1908 and 1913.
