The grandiose approach to early American melodramas was largely defined by one man: the prolific and controversial director D.W. Griffith. Creating some of the most ambitious and provocative films in cinematic history, Griffith’s films explored new methods of storytelling while pioneering film techniques that inform filmmakers to this day. Way Down East was Griffith’s grandest film, costing the most in production and leaving the cast and crew with lasting physical damage.
