David Llewelyn Wark Griffith
[D.W. Griffith]
January 22, 1875 - July 21, 1948
D.W. Grifith was a pioneering American film director, perhaps best remembered for his controversial film, The Birth of a Nation (1915), whose distorted view of the American Civil War Reconstruction period precipitated the 1920s revival of the Ku Klux Klan.
He also directed the films Abraham Lincoln (1930), Orphans of the Storm (1921), Way Down East (1920), Broken Blossoms (1919), Intolerance: Love's Struggle Through the Ages (1916) and An Unseen Enemy (1912).
