To celebrate the 67th birthday of the silent film director D.W. Griffith, the editors of a once semi-illustrious Hollywood literary magazine pasted his famous profile on their magazine cover and devoted columns to his innovations:

"Griffith not only founded the cult of the cinema, but he was also its major prophet... Griffith invented or developed the flash-back, the iris device, close-ups, inter-cutting [and] parallel plot weaving... Today, Griffith is pleased to refer to his films as 'experiments'. His films were experiments, not only because he was modeling in a new and virtually untried medium, but also because his restless, creative urge continually sought unorthodox and additional means of capturing effects and emotion on celluloid."
