Paul Robeson's tour de force performance in the taboo-busting partial adaptation of Eugene O'Neal's play. Universally recognized today as a landmark film, in 1933 it was rejected by a large segment of the African-American community. In one respect they were justified. "The Emperor Jones" does reenforce negative black stereotypes. Directed by Dudley Murphy (& William C de Mille...

Too much for the 21 st Century? From 1926, comes D.W. Griffith’s most graphic work, THE SORROWS OF SATAN, conceived from Marie Corelli’s popular book of the day.  Described as "Faust in the Roaring 20's," Images of nudity and excess have earned the work notoriety through the decades.   A nightclub scene in the American film version has enough clothing to pass censors. For Europe, the lead female is seen bare-breasted. If you thought it was by Cecil B. DeMille – that’s...

Director D.W. Griffith's expensive, most ambitious silent film masterpiece Intolerance (1916) is one of the milestones and landmarks in cinematic history. Many reviewers and film historians consider it the greatest film of the silent era. The mammoth film was also subtitled: "A Sun-Play of the Ages" and "Love's Struggle Throughout the Ages." Griffith was inspired to make this film after watching the revolutionary Italian silent film epic Cabiria (1914) by director Giovanni...
