About this Item

A Christmas card from silent film director D.W. Griffith with a letterpress design on the front and a printed message on the interior reading: ÒMr. D.W. Griffith sends Christmas greetings and best wishes for the New Year.Ó The image on the front of the card is in sepia-toned ink and shows three gentlemen in early American dress gathered in a library where a cozy fire lights the room and one of the men stands reading from an open book. The text reads: ÒOld wood to burn / Old books to read / Old friends to trust.Ó Evidence of mounting on the back of the card. Folded at the top edge, touch of darkening to the bottom edge, else fine. Silent film director D.W. Griffith is unquestioned as the single most influential figure in the history of American film, with an amazing body of work to his credit, including such classics as The Birth of a Nation, Intolerance, Orphans of the Storm, and many more.
