Broken Blossoms (1919)

Another brilliant film by D.W. Griffith and Lillian Gish. It is disappointing that so many people focus on the controversy surrounding the movie “Birth of a Nation” that the real message and goals of Griffith’s work tend to be lost. Griffith was a man ahead of his time addressing social issues such as child abuse that so few considered worthy of discussion. Although reluctant to play the role of a child, Lillian manages to pull it off superbly! Back to the D.W. Griffith Library
