Considered one of D.W. Griffith's best films, the silent Broken Blossoms comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.33:1. Supplemental materials include a filmed introduction from lead actress Lillian Gish, D.W. Griffith revealing his opinions on working with different actresses, and a recording of the 1919 song "Broken Blossoms." This is an excellent disc for anyone with an interest in the earliest days of film.
Filmed introduction by Lillian Gish including excerpts from Gish's film Romola (1925 MGM)
