Sweet words of praise were piled high for the silent film director D.W. Griffith when he was selected by VANITY FAIR magazine to be one of their anointed ones:

"Because he was for many years an excellent actor and a leading man on Broadway; because he went into moving pictures as a an actor and emerged from them as a producer; because the greater the magnitude of the task ahead of him the more the prospect pleases him; because he invented the high-priced movies; because he has employed upwards of 5,000 people in a single scene; because he is an excellent musician and wrote the orchestral music for 'Hearts of the World', the most sensational moving picture of recent years."
