D.W. Griffith's last film (1931) was unquestionably dated when it was released at the height of the Depression, both as an antidrinking polemic—probably fueled in part by Griffith's own struggles with alcoholism—and as a Victorian melodrama. Yet today it emerges as one of his most powerful and intensely felt works—not merely a heartbreaking story and a portrait of the Depression at its grimmest, but a poignant summary of everything that Griffith could do with a camera, even in low-budget, unspectacular circumstances. With Hal Skelly and Zita Johann.
