1916. USA. Directed by D. W. Griffith. With Lillian Gish, Mae Marsh, Robert Harron, Miriam Cooper. Intolerance is a work of ambition bordering on madness, interweaving four disparate tales of “intolerance” through the ages: the fall of Babylon, the crucifixion, the Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre in France, and a modern tale of injustice in America. The film remains a monument to directors who have tried to push the medium beyond “acceptable” limits. Silent. Approx. 130 min.
