Intolerance D.W. Griffith's epic masterpiece( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considered by many critics to be the greatest film of the silent era, Griffith used the film to answer his critics' charges of racism in his previous film, The birth of a nation. The lavish, innovative epic weaves four separate stories that depict the meance of hate, from Babylonian times to the twentieth century, tied together by a poignant motif of life's continuous struggle with good vs. evil. The dramatization of intolerance is realized through the fall of Babylon, the Pharisees' condemnation of Jesus Christ, the presecution of Huguenots in 16th-century Paris during Catehrine de Medici's regime, and a contempoary morality play wherein social reformers destroy a young couple's pursuit of happiness

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Switch tower, The Lonedale operator, and An unseen enemy are edge-of-your-seat thrillers, enhanced by Griffith's innovations. The Musketeers of Pig Alley is a landmark portrait of New York City slum life, while The little tease is a typical morality tale of the time, as a flirty mountain girl gets lured to town by a sweet-talking city slicker. Man's genesis is a prehistoric love story concerning Weakhands, a frail caveman who invents the first club for use in bashing the head of his rival for the love of Lillywhite

After the war, Ben Cameron, distressed that his beloved south is now under the rule of blacks and carpetbaggers, organizes several like-minded Southerners into a secret vigilante group called the Ku Klux Klan.
