  • Way Down East

    1920. USA. Directed by D. W. Griffith. Based on a play by Lottie Blair Parker. With Lillian Gish, Richard Barthelmess, Lowell Sherman. When Griffith abandoned Hollywood in 1919, he chose this classic melodrama—filmed at his new studio in Mamaroneck, with extensive location shooting on frozen Vermont landscapes and the treacherous ice floes of White River Junction—to announce his return to filmmaking. Silent, with musical accompaniment. Approx. 150 min.
