(Cambridge Film Classics) Series (B&W photographs) The book "serves as an introduction to, and a cultural argument for, the work of the first widely acknowledged master filmmaker. Situating D.W. Griffith within film history and American studies, [the author] addresses Griffith's competing reputations as a genius of cinematic form and a retrograde purveyor of reactionary and racist tales." There is of course an extended discussion of THE BIRTH OF A NATION and INTOLERANCE, but Simmon also "identifies the enduring works among the approximately 450 shorter films that Griffith directed for the Biograph Company between 1908 and 1913, years of rapid change in the film industry.
