FINE TRIBUTE TO A GREAT CRAFTSMAN
David W. Wagner | 10/12/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Most film documentaries feature film clips and interviews and this one follows the tradition. Just h-o-w Mr. Griffith created his masterpieces and interviews from those who knew and worked with him highlight this tribute. His rise, fall and legacy are documented with respect for the subject and what he left behind. Another fine portrait from Messrs. Brownlow and Gill, who have been of inestimable value in documenting the heritage of silent films."
