  1. If you Google D. W. Griffith, I’m pretty sure the guy in the boater on the platform is D. W. Griffith……

  2. I love this post. I’m a musicologist working on the score for this film, and now I can cite you when I discuss the fantasy and anachronistic elements of the movie. Thanks!

  3. Now I’m wondering if the Orphans of the Storm inspired the 1920s fascination with the ancien regime. Or if Griffith cashed in on the interest already there.
