"In 1948, legendary screen actress Ida Lupino left Warner Bros. to co-found The Filmmakers, an independent production company conceived as an alternative to the dominant aesthetics of Hollywood. With the low-key, intimate 'Not Wanted'" [produced the next year by her Emerald Productions, Inc.], "Lupino tackled the 'taboo' topic of out-of-wedlock pregnancy, immediately venturing into terrain where big-budget mainstream fantasy-spinners feared to tread. In many ways this extraordinary first directorial effort, while uncredited, already bears the stamp of Lupino's unique vision: the remarkable empathy felt for the lead character (Sally Forrest as the dazed, traumatized young waitress thrust into the world of unwed motherhood), the hallucinatory moments ... of the childbirth sequence, and the deft location-shooting (as Forrest wanders through the bus stations and boarding houses of small-town America)"--Container

Intolerance : D.W. Griffith's epic masterpiece( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 15 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
