Century 1918: Hearts of the World

Hearts of the World. D.W. Griffith. 1918.

Hey, it’s the first post of the new movie blog series hopefully taking me from 1918 to 2018. By skipping some years.

D. W. Griffith is a very controversial director, of course, but Lillian Gish is Lillian Gish.

This is an awfully confusing movie. Mostly because I thought some of the floppy-hatted soldiers were French when apparently they were German? Don’t all the Germans wear non-floppy hats?

You see my difficulties.

Still: Pretty nice. The boy who over-played all his scenes as a lovable munchkin won all his scenes. Just go for it! Even if what you’re going for is somebody’s ankles.

This blog post is part of the Century series.
