Not available on Home Video
This documentary is the definitive treatment of the most celebrated director in American silent film, the man who made INTOLERANCE. With interviews from cast and crew, family members and eye-witnesses, and extended excerpts from the entire span of his work. The programme reviews in depth the high points of his work, when he led the industry, the controversy of BIRTH OF A NATION, and his decline when he lost touch with his developing art.
