This nearly 100-year-old silent movie is the story of two orphaned sisters during the French revolution. Despite the 3-hour length, we stayed glued to the screen—a testament to writer/producer/director DW Griffith, the Gish sisters, and their supporting cast. We knew the Gish sisters so well–they were friends of our parents and performed in many plays for The Theatre Guild!
It is unbelievable how far cinema has advanced, but equally as amazing how much we can still enjoy the classics by tuning into Turner Classic Movies!
