About this Item

While the book is in excellent condition, the dust jacket has some wear, minor creases and repaired tears at the creases. With compassion and clarity, this book traces the rise and fall of David Wark Griffith. It presents a fully-faceted portrait of a theatrical personality who lived by grandiloquent gestures and practiced exaggerated southern gentility. Dr. Henderson traces Griffith's Confederate background; describes his early years on the stage as an actor and aspiring playwright; and then details his film career from the first directional assignments at Biograph Films, where he made more than 400 one-and-two-reel movies in five years, to the pathetic final years on the fringes of Hollywood.
