Intolerance : a drama of comparisons by D. W Griffith( Visual )

15 editions published between 1916 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 920 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considered by many critics to be the greatest film of the silent era, Griffith used the film to answer his critics' charges of racism in his previous film, The birth of a nation. The lavish, innovative epic weaves four separate stories that depict the meance of hate, from Babylonian times to the twentieth century, tied together by a poignant motif of life's continuous struggle with good vs. evil. The dramatization of intolerance is realized through the fall of Babylon, the Pharisees' condemnation of Jesus Christ, the presecution of Huguenots in 16th-century Paris during Catehrine de Medici's regime, and a contempoary morality play wherein social reformers destroy a young couple's pursuit of happiness
